Dysart Taylor is pleased to announce Managing Director Amanda Pennington Ketchum has been selected to join the Missouri Bar’s recently formed Special Committee on Lawyers of Color (SCLOC).

The SCLOC was created in October 2020 to concentrate on efforts to increase the retention, promotion and advancement of minority lawyers in the state of Missouri. The committee has four key areas of exploration: law firms (solo, small, medium and large); corporate/in-house, government and judiciary; bar associations; and law schools.

Ketchum’s practice focuses on a variety of civil litigation ranging from representing trucking companies in catastrophic injury claims and retailers in slip-and-fall claims to helping professionals navigate a malpractice claim. Using her extensive experience, she meticulously investigates accidents and works with clients to strategically litigate cases through trial.
