Baker Sterchi Member Martha Charepoo has been chosen to receive the 2020 Missouri Lawyers Media Women’s Justice award in the “Litigation Practitioner” category.

Since 1999, the Women’s Justice Awards has recognized women across Missouri who have showed leadership, integrity, service, sacrifice and accomplishment in improving the quality of justice and exemplifying the highest ideals of the legal profession. The awards honor women in various segments of the legal community, including the bar, the bench, public office, business, academia, nonprofits and the state at large.

Located in Baker Sterchi’s St. Louis office, Charepoo focuses her practice on complex commercial litigation, fraud and unfair trade practices, insurance coverage, subrogation, insurance bad faith litigation, product liability defense, and general liability.

A recent recipient of the Missouri Lawyers Media Diversity and Inclusion Award (2019), Charepoo is the Chair of Baker Sterchi’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee and a current Fellow of the Legal Counsel on Legal Diversity. She is also a member of the Missouri Asian American Bar Association and Missouri Bar Association.

This year’s Women’s Justice Awards honorees will be recognized on June 26 at the Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis. Honorees will also be profiled in a special section of Missouri Lawyers Weekly.
