Celia Carroll defends companies in cases involving medical and pharmaceutical liability, toxic torts, product liability, and commercial litigation.
Responsive, driven, and team-oriented, Celia manages and coordinates defense strategies for claims involving medical and pharmaceutical liability, toxic tort, and product liability. She is actively involved in every aspect of client defense, from pre-trial strategy and investigation through discovery, substantive motion practice, alternative dispute resolution, trial, and post-trial work. This deep experience has allowed her to develop strong relationships and rapport with opposing counsel and judges, helping her to obtain favorable results for clients.
Celia also has significant experience as a commercial litigator. In representing clients in cannabis litigation and regulatory matters, she manages pre-trial strategy, substantive motion practice, discovery, and trial preparation.
Before beginning her law practice, Celia gained important practical experience and honed her writing and analytical skills as a law clerk for the Honorable Nannette Baker – when she sat on the Missouri Court of Appeals – and as an intern for the Honorable Audrey Fleissig in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri.
As a volunteer for the Missouri Right to Counsel, Cecelia has represented criminal defendants in the City of St. Louis and in St. Louis County, where she has conducted a jury trial and negotiated a favorable plea deal to alleviate backlogged public defender cases.
In her free time, Celia can usually be found outside hiking, cycling, or exploring St. Louis with her two children.
