Kari is the managing partner at the firm of Conlee, Schmidt & Emerson LLP, where her practice areas include employment law, probate, business law, and federal criminal defense.  When requested by the U.S. District court to accept reduced fee criminal appointments because of the lack of women on the federal criminal appointments list, Schmidt did so willingly and has served in that capacity for many years.  She has also handled numerous pro bono cases for ARC of Sedgwick County.  Schmidt is active in the Kansas, Wichita, and American Bar Associations; Wichita Women Attorneys Association; Chamber Music Barn; and the Wichita Association of Motion Picture Arts, which sponsors the Tallgrass Film Festival.  She also sits on the Institutional Review Board of the Wichita Medical Research and Educational Foundation.

Frank Barton School of Business at Wichita State University, and the Master’s in Business Law Program at Friends University.  She has taught courses in consumer transactions, legal research and writing, law and banking, and employment law.  She also frequently speaks at continuing legal education seminars.
