Evelyn Lundberg Stratton, who prior to joining Vorys served for 16 years on the Ohio Supreme Court, received the AMVETS Past State Department Commanders’ Civil Servant of the Year Award for her work on behalf of veterans.  The award was presented to Stratton by the  AMVETS Department of Ohio for her advocacy related to the development of veterans’ courts, which assist returning veterans with post traumatic stress and other issues that may lead them to criminal activity.
