About me

Hello, I'm Ed Armstrong and I've been a practicing attorney in Missouri for over 40 years.  On a more personal note, I've been married to my wife, Kathleen (a middle school language arts teacher), for 43 years, we have two adult daughters, Emily and Allison and, at this time, two grandchildren, Quillan, age 9 and Rosie, Age 7.  I love to read and, when the opportunity presents itself, I like to travel. One of my favorite cities is Charleston, South Carolina.  I've been in all the state except seven (I won't say which seven) and to a couple of other countries.  I think beaches are great, at least when it's sunny and there are no storms on the horizon.  I've lived in St. Louis since about 1963 and before that in the Chicago area (I was born in Chicago).  I enjoy Spring, Summer and Fall and really don't much care for Winter (odd for a Chicago native?)
