John “Jack” Waldron

Jack has dedicated his legal career representing people who fight police and governmental misconduct. He spent the first five years of his career at ArchCity Defenders, where he worked on a variety of civil rights litigation involving police departments, jails, and municipalities all over the St. Louis region. He spent several years working on a series of class-action debtor prison cases against predatory area municipalities, and successfully argued contested class certification hearings in federal court against three area municipalities who had unlawfully jailed tens of thousands of poor people. Since joining KW Law, Jack has continued to work on class-action and individual litigation related to civil rights, wrongful death, and discrimination. He has taken police misconduct cases to trial at the federal and state level, and he has argued and briefed cases at the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals.
