Arthur, Chapman, Kettering, Smetak & Pikala, P.A. is pleased to recognize Attorney Beth Jenson Prouty for her appointment to the Legislative Salary Council. 

Beth is a Shareholder at Arthur Chapman and previously clerked for the Honorable Alan C. Page, Helen M. Meyer, and Christopher J. Dietzen at the Minnesota Supreme Court.  She now focuses her practice in litigation–primarily in the areas of insurance coverage, appeals, commercial and personal auto, and employment law–where she puts her skills to use advocating for her clients.  Whatever the cases may involve, Beth uses in-depth analytical research to understand and convey legal issues. 

“Beth’s appointment to the Minnesota Legislative Salary Council is a testament to the respect she has earned within the legal industry,” said Jim Pikala, shareholder and member of Arthur Chapman’s board of directors. “We are consistently impressed by her dedication and work ethic and know her efforts will be appreciated by the Council.”

The Legislative Salary Council prescribes the salaries for Minnesota legislators through a report that must be submitted by March 31 of each odd-numbered year. The Council is comprised of 16 members—8 appointed by the Governor and 8 appointed by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court—with members representing each congressional district. Beth is representing the second district.
