About Pugh & Pugh Attorneys at Law, P.A.

The Pugh law firm had its origin in 1946 when R.M. Pugh, a Marine officer returning from WWII sought a place to practice law. From a law book salesman he learned of a law office for sale in Wamego, KS.

In 1975 Edward W. Pugh (Ed), born in Wamego, Kansas in 1949, returned to Wamego with his wife and a new law degree, both obtained at the University of Kansas. He joined his father in the practice of law under the new name of Pugh & Pugh Attorneys.

Then Jacob Pugh, (Jake) a 2002 undergraduate of the University of Kansas and a 2006 graduate of Washburn University Law School joined the firm in 2006. The firm name continued as Pugh & Pugh under the theory that three “Pughs” in the name might be redundant and there have never been more than two practicing at one time. In 2013 the firm was incorporated and became Pugh & Pugh Attorneys at Law, P.A. 75 years later the firm continues to serve generations of clients in the area with a focus on personal service.
