Clinkinbeard Featured in KC Business Journal: From a Family of Firefighters, She Puts Out Blazes in Court

September 18, 2015 Media Coverage

Kansas City partner Karrie Clinkinbeard is a wife, mother, Royals fan, cake pop enthusiast and attorney. And she is one of only a handful of lawyers in the U.S. to hold the Certified Fire and Explosion credential, which means she spends most days traipsing around fire scenes in a hard hat and steel-toe boots. 

Karrie was featured in today's print edition of the Kansas City Business Journal as a "Newsmaker." The story highlights Karrie's success as a fire and explosion attorney at Armstrong Teasdale – with a nice shout out to Lynn Hursh – and showcases her family history in the industry. 

The article also shares something about Karrie you may not know: she is great at crafting and uses reclaimed barn wood to make signs and decorations.
