Cort VanOstran is an attorney, advocate, and educator. Cort was born and raised in small-town Missouri, the son of a flight paramedic and a substitute teacher. When Cort was eight years old, his father died, leaving his mother to raise him and his younger brother and sister. Cort graduated from public school and went on to Harvard, where scholarships covered the steep tuition. As an attorney, Cort advocates on behalf of farmers and other hardworking Missourians. He’s worked on important litigation with his law firm, including a $217.7 million verdict for Kansas corn farmers in a class-action suit based on allegations of corporate negligence. As a visiting lecturer at Washington University School of Law, Cort teaches first-year law students. He also coordinates a community partnership between Washington University and several metro-area public schools. Cort is running for Congress because he is determined to put the people of Missouri before establishment politics. He won’t sit by as Washington guts the protections and institutions that make our country strong.
