Profile

Maria Drouhard is a member of Foulston’s employment and litigation practice group in the firm’s Kansas City office. She received her J.D. from the University of Kansas School of Law. Prior to joining Foulston, Maria spent three years as a law clerk at the federal level. Her clerkships gave her experience both with a wide variety of legal issues, from commercial disputes to employment issues, and with managing a courtroom on the trial and appellate levels.

Maria appreciates the opportunities to help clients achieve their goals, resolving their issues effectively and thoughtfully, and choosing the best path for their unique, individual needs.  

In her free time, Maria can often be found taking her son to the park, gardening, or exercising. A life-long Midwesterner, Maria enjoys staying involved with her community.
