Attorney Luke Hangge

Committed to Hard Work, Determined to Make a Difference

Luke Hangge’s life has been defined by hard work and perseverance.  He worked full time during high school and most of his higher education—paying his own way throughout.  His life experience taught him that nothing comes easy, and nothing comes without hard work.

Luke earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Central Washington University and a Master of Business from Western Washington University.  After graduation, he achieved a notable career in human resource management.  However, Luke felt unfulfilled.  He desired to make a difference in the lives of others.  This desire led him to make the drastic decision to leave his comfortable career and return to school.

Luke attended the University of Kansas School of Law, earning his Juris Doctor.  He completed a judicial internship for Judge Julie A. Robinson in the United States District Court for the District of Kansas and a legal internship for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.  After graduating, Luke worked for a top civil defense law firm in Kansas City.  But ultimately, he continued to feel unfulfilled.  That’s when Luke met TJ Preuss.  Drawn to the ideals and mission of Preuss | Foster Law, Luke jumped at the opportunity to help those affected by injustice.  

Luke has a unique perspective and insight into how corporations operate based on his experience working in human resources and defending corporations in litigation.  Luke puts this experience to work for you and not the corporations—whose interest is too often only the bottom line.  Because of his corporate experience, Luke is uniquely positioned to know how corporations operate and how to achieve the best results for his clients.

As an attorney at Preuss | Foster Law, Luke focuses on personal injury, professional negligence and consumer and employee fraud.  He has a particular interest in cases involving people who have been taken advantage of under ERISA employee pension and health plans and cases involving employees who are unfairly paid in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
