Bob Ewald, former Partner-in-Charge of Wyatt's pro bono efforts, was lauded, along with a number of other attorneys, for assisting clients with their disability claims, in a Courier-Journal front page article. The article, "Lawyers help Mr. Social Security's ex-clients," discusses the pro bono work being conducted in Eastern Kentucky in the aftermath of the indictment of a workers' compensation disability lawyer and judge. Mr. Ewald and other attorneys have stepped up to assist nearly 1,500 disabled persons left in the lurch on their disability claims.
During his career at Wyatt, Mr. Ewald served as President of the Kentucky Bar Association and Chair of the Legal Aid Society, and founded the Louisville-Jefferson County Public Defender Corporation. He has been honored as the Pro Bono Lawyer of the Year by the Louisville and Kentucky Bar Associations, and the National Legal Aid and Defender Association.
