Honorable Caleb Stegall
Justice, Kansas Supreme Court 2014-

Hon Caleb Stegall

Stegall was appointed to the Supreme Court by Gov. Sam Brownback in 2014.

Stegall was born in Topeka and grew up in Lawrence. He graduated from Lawrence High School in 1989 and from the University of Kansas School of Law in 1999. While there, he served on the Kansas Law Review, was awarded the William L. Burdick Prize, and graduated Order of the Coif.

Stegall started his legal career in Lawrence, serving as a law clerk to U.S. Circuit Judge Deanell Tacha of the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. He then joined the Topeka office of the Foulston Siefkin law firm, where he practiced in commercial, tort, and appellate litigation.

He later formed Stegall & Associates in Perry, specializing in complex constitutional and commercial litigation. He successfully represented American missionaries charged with serious crimes in Haiti following that country's earthquake in 2010, for which he was awarded the Kansas Bar Association's 2010 Pro Bono Certificate.

Stegall was elected county attorney of Jefferson County, where he oversaw a full-time staff that managed a yearly caseload of hundreds of felonies and misdemeanors. He personally handled the most serious of these, including prosecuting cases of murder, rape, crimes against children, drug manufacture and distribution, and white collar financial crimes.

Stegall is the Supreme Court liaison for the Client Protection Fund Commission, Board of Examiners of Court Reporters, and Criminal Justice Coordinating Council. He also is liaison for the Kansas Judicial Center security committee and to court clerks.
