Profile

Rebekah Pinkston is a member of the firm’s litigation and employment team in Foulston’s Kansas City office. She previously spent three years in the firm’s Wichita office handling commercial litigation. As part of her practice, Beka works with clients in a wide range of industries ranging from the Fortune 100 to closely held entrepreneurial businesses. She has been selected by her peers for inclusion in the Missouri & Kansas Super Lawyers® Rising Star list since 2017. 

Before joining Foulston in 2013, Beka served as a judicial intern for now-retired Judge Janice Karlin in the United States Bankruptcy Court, District of Kansas, earning invaluable experience and insight into how the judicial system works. At Foulston, Beka has helped clients resolve disputes and litigate cases related to contract disputes, debt collections, employment and labor matters, and general tort matters, such as personal injury, wrongful death, discrimination, and wrongful termination. She frequently represents governmental entities such as cities and counties, which often involve complex questions of constitutional law.

Most recently, Beka was a member of the Foulston trial team in a federal jury trial, in which the jury awarded Foulston’s client a $12.6 million verdict. She has also been involved in complex cases which include employment and governmental liability litigation involving questions of constitutional law, and a major contract dispute between a large airplane manufacturer and one of its key suppliers.
