May 3, 2023 Firm News

Jeffery McPherson and Katie Doherty, lawyers in Armstrong Teasdale’s St. Louis office, were recognized by the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis at the organization’s annual Law Day Luncheon on May 1.

McPherson received the Ronda F. Williams Community Awareness Award, which is named in memory of a highly respected lawyer who passed away suddenly in 2013 at the age of 41.

McPherson was recognized for his community service, including leadership as chair of the Attorneys Against Hunger Committee and the Missouri High School Mock Trial Competition. He is the president of the board of Rebuilding Together St. Louis (which coordinates teams of volunteers to perform home repairs for low-income veterans, seniors, and persons with disabilities) and a board member of the Webster Groves School District Foundation (which provides grants to innovative teachers and scholarships to students). McPherson is a Fellow of the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers. He has represented clients in over 200 appeals of all kinds since 1995. 

Doherty was honored with the John C. Shepherd Professionalism Award, which is presented to a young lawyer who exemplifies professionalism in the tradition of Mr. Shepherd, a giant of the St. Louis legal community who was a partner at Armstrong Teasdale and served as president of the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis and the American Bar Association.

Doherty is a litigation associate who represents clients in tort cases, contract disputes and real estate matters. She performs a significant amount of pro bono work in both Missouri and Illinois and is a leader in the bar.

Doherty was also the recipient of a Young Lawyers Division Award of Merit.
