TOPEKA, KAN. – Tom Beall will serve as Acting U.S. Attorney for the District of Kansas.

Beall takes over after U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom steps down on April  15 to re-enter private practice. As Acting U.S. Attorney, Beall will be in charge of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Kansas, which comprises approximately 50 Assistant U.S. Attorneys and 50 support staff members working in offices in Topeka, Kansas City, Kan., and Wichita. Beall will work mainly out of the office in Topeka.

“It makes it easier for me to go knowing the U.S. Attorney’s Office is in Tom’s capable hands,” Grissom said. “It has been a pleasure working with him.”

Since November 2013, Beall served as First Assistant U.S. Attorney, making him the second in command of the U.S. Attorney’s Office. He joined the office as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in April 2011.

Beall is a native of Leavenworth, Kan. He served as Chief Deputy in the office of Kansas Attorney General Steve Six from March 2008 to January 2011. He was an adjunct instructor at Washburn University School of Law from August 2013 to January 2015. He was in private practice from 2000 to 2008.

Beall graduated in 2000 from the Washburn University School of Law after earning a master’s degree in public administration from Kansas State University and a bachelor’s degree from Baker University.
