Jackson County prosecutor named among top U.S. trial lawyers

May 21, 2014

Dawn Parsons

Dawn Parsons, a veteran Jackson County prosecutor, has been named as a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in America established to recognize the nation’s top trial lawyers.

 

Parsons, 46, becomes the only woman attorney in Missouri in the last 17 years to be named to the College. She also is the only prosecutor named to the group from Missouri.

 

“Dawn Parsons has nobly served the citizens of Jackson County for two decades,” said Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker. “She is an extremely talented trial attorney and is most deserving of this award.”

 

Parsons serves as Chief Trial Assistant in the Jackson County Prosecutor’s office and often is assigned to prosecute murders and other violent crimes. She was inducted earlier this month into the College, whose membership is limited to one percent of the total lawyer population of any state. Admission to the College is by invitation only and after careful investigation. Lawyers must have a minimum of 15 years trial experience and their professional careers have been distinguished by the highest ethical conduct, professionalism, civility and collegiality, according to the American College of Trial Lawyers.

 

The College admits lawyers from all branches of trial practice and strives to improve the standards of trial practice, the administration of justice and the ethics of the trial profession. Other Kansas City-area attorneys in the College include Thomas Wagstaff and J.R. Hobbs.
