Lora practiced as a public defender directly out of law school and then became a prosecutor for the Finney County Attorney’s Office.  In 2011, Lora relocated to the Manhattan area and has been in private practice.  Lora primarily focuses on criminal defense and is a zealous advocate for her clients.  She has obtained acquittals on many high-level cases, including rape, aggravated indecent liberties with a child and first-degree murder.  Lora also practices Divorce, Child Custody and Child in Need of Care throughout the State of Kansas. 



Patrick Caffey

Patrick Caffey earned his bachelors degree from Oklahoma State University (BA 1967) and his juris doctor degree from the University of Oklahoma (J.D. 1970).

After law school he served four years in the United States Army (CPT JAGC). The army brought him to Kansas where he has practiced law in Manhattan since 1974. He has been a prosecutor in municipal court, an assistant county attorney, and currently serves in a part-time capacity as Municipal Court Judge.

Patrick maintains an active civil law practice. Whether in divorce, probate, or landlord/tenant disputes, he strives to help his clients navigate the legal system for a fair fee. He believes an attorney should also strive to prevent problems for the client, not just try to solve problems after the fact. Whether by preparation of a contract, a lease, a will or trust, or by giving advice, Patrick believes a lawyer should have prevention of legal problems as a primary goal.

``Ms. Ingels helped me during a custody issue. She actually cares and will fight until the end to get what you want. I have sent numerous friends to Ms. Ingels and everyone was satisfied. It has been 5 years since me winning custody and Lora still calls to check on the kids and I from time to time. I would recommend Lora for any situation you may be dealing with.``
