MaKenzi D. Higgins, Esq.
founding partner, Legal and Administrative Consultant
The journey that began MaKenzi's interest in law started in Los Angeles. She volunteered as an intern at a talent agency, was hired the next week as an assistant, and six months later was promoted to talent agent. This made her the youngest Screen Actors Guild franchised agent on either coast at age nineteen. Although not yet a lawyer, she learned legalese as she went, and began successfully negotiating forty page talent contracts with networks, and broke new ground by creating a clause never before used by talent networks that became boilerplate terminology for most tv and film contracts today.
MaKenzi transitioned from agency to management at twenty-three, becoming the CEO of a large firm at twenty-four, and later opened her own talent management company with her sister, Marissa. To this day, Marissa carries that talent company forward with clients on film and television that you would know and recognize.
MaKenzi graduated Cum Laude from the University of Missouri-Kansas City with dual Bachelors degrees in Art History and Studio Art. She graduated with honors from UMKC School of Law with her Juris Doctor, after providing over 200 hours of free legal work for domestic abuse victims in Kansas City. MaKenzi was named the top Oralist at the Ellison Moot Court Competition at the Federal Courthouse in Jackson County, MO and received a cash award for her excellent advocacy skills.
MaKenzi met the love of her life, Dr. Jeffery A. Higgins in 2007, and eventually they married on the beautiful beaches of Jamaica. She has been involved in the dental community ever since, as a business administrator and now as a dental legal and administrative consultant. As one of only a handful of attorneys in the United States with this practice focus, she is an asset to every practice she works with.
MaKenzi and Jeff are active in church and charitable giving, donating over 1000 pounds of food and toiletries to local food banks and churches every year. They are animal lovers, with two cats and a dog at home in Olathe. Dr. Higgins is a wonderful general dentist who's practice, Olathe Dental Care is right next door to Higgins & Corder, so they have lunch together almost every day.
