Ken Seufert, P.C.
I was born in Kansas City, Missouri on September 25, 1951. I attended Rockhurst High School and graduated in 1969. I attended the University of Missouri at Columbia and obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree cum laude in Forestry in 1973.
I attended the University of Missouri at Kansas City Law School and obtained a Juris Doctorate with distinction in December of 1976. I was licensed in 1977.
I first practiced in Viburnum, Missouri from 1977 to 1979. From 1979 to the present, I have practiced law in Farmington, Missouri. In 1979, I was appointed a Special Assistant Public Defender, and in 1980, I was appointed Public Defender of the 24th Judicial Circuit. Also in 1980, I incorporated Meramec Area Legal Aid Corporation, and I served as its first interim director. I opened my private practice of law in Farmington, Missouri in 1983, and have practiced in Farmington ever since. My law practice deals primarily with workers’ compensation, personal injury, wrongful death, Chapter 7 bankruptcy, and civil trial practice. I emphasize trial work and not paperwork.
I am an avid waterfowl hunter and trout fisherman. I own a sixty acre farm near Puxico, Missouri that I use for waterfowl hunting and partially lease out for farming. I am also a fruit and vegetable gardener.
I presently reside in St. Francois County, and married to Susan Lee Seufert.
