Governor Eric Greitens has appointed Katherine (“Katie”) M. Fowler, of St. Louis, as Circuit Court Judge for the 22nd Judicial Circuit, which covers the City of St. Louis. The position became vacant due to the retirement of the Honorable Edward Sweeney.
Katie Fowler is an Officer at Greensfelder, Hemker & Gale, P.C. She brings to the bench more than 17 years of experience specializing in complex civil litigation. Fowler has defended businesses in numerous complex civil cases, ranging from pharmaceutical, medical malpractice, product liability, environmental, and class action litigation. She received her law degree from Saint Louis University and her undergraduate degree from the University of Dayton.
Fowler, a lifelong St. Louis resident, is a leader in her community. She is the founder and director of the Sister Jackie Toben Legal Clinic, an organization that provides pro bono legal services to participants of Let’s Start, which aids women transitioning out of incarceration. She previously served as the President of the Board of Directors for Let’s Start. Fowler is a member of 100 Women Who Care, St. Louis and St. Francis Xavier College Church.
“I am proud to announce the appointment of Katie Fowler to St. Louis City’s circuit court,” said Governor Greitens. “Katie is a seasoned litigator with a distinguished career in private practice. She will bring her knowledge of complex litigation to the bench and will serve the court with distinction for many years to come.”
