Breihan to lead MacArthur Justice Center's St. Louis office.

Byline: Staff Report

The MacArthur Justice Center has chosen Amy Breihan to serve as the new director of its St. Louis office.

The center, which was founded in Chicago and now has offices in St. Louis and three other cities, is a civil-rights law firm that pushes for reform in the criminal-justice system.

Breihan has been at the St. Louis office since it was set up in 2016. Under her leadership, the office plans to focus on improving the Missouri Department of Corrections, the Missouri State Public Defender System and the state parole-revocation process.

Prior to joining the MacArthur Justice Center, Breihan was a trial attorney at what is now Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner LLP. While there, she was part of a team of lawyers who sought second-chance sentences for Missouri youth with life sentences. Breihan earned her law degree in 2010 from what is now the Northwestern Pritzker School of Law.
