Faith Maughan is a pro-life, constitutional conservative, veteran with her roots in small town Kansas. Throughout her legal career, Faith has developed a wide breadth of experience that few can match, as she has practiced law from every seat in the court room. In addition to her work as a JAG Attorney in the U.S. Army Reserve, she has served as a Judge, prosecutor, defense counsel, and an advocate on behalf of children in Child In Need of Care cases. She has also represented clients in various probate and civil matters. 

Faith grew up as the only child of a working mother in Peabody, Kansas. After high school, Faith moved to Topeka where she enrolled in Washburn University and worked her way through college and law school.

After earning her law degree, Faith worked as a prosecutor for the City of Wichita before being offered an associate attorney position with the Wichita law firm, Smith, Shay, Farmer and Wetta. While working in private practice Faith gained experience in civil, criminal, and probate law. However, Faith’s calling to public service soon led her to accept a position as a prosecutor for the State of Kansas in the Reno County District Attorney’s Office.

While working at the District Attorney’s Office, Faith continued her service in the U.S. Army Reserve Judge Advocate General’s Corp until she received orders to report for active duty. During Operation Iraqi Freedom, Faith served on active duty in support of that operation. Upon being released from active service, Faith returned to her role as a prosecutor for the State of Kansas where she worked to protect children from abuse, mistreatment and neglect.


After the birth of her first child, Faith, like many new mothers, wrestled with the desire to balance her primary role as mother with her career. After much prayer and consideration, Faith joined her husband, Carl Maughan, as a partner in their law firm, Maughan and Maughan LC.  

Faith is the administrative partner at her family owned business, and practices as a lawyer providing legal services for adoptions, probate matters, wills and estates, and she also continues her work protecting children as a legal advocate for children involved in Child in Need of Care cases. 

In addition to her private practice, Faith serves as a Judge for the City of Colwich and as prosecutor for the cities of Maize and Park City. In addition, she continues her service as a lawyer in the U.S. Army Reserve Judge Advocate General's Corps. Faith also balances her legal practice with volunteer work at the pregnancy crisis center, “A Better Choice,” and at the “Lord’s Diner.” Faith, her husband Carl, and their two children, Avril and Liam, worship at St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church where their children attend school and where Faith volunteers on a regular basis.
