Evelyn Lundberg Stratton, of counsel in the Columbus office who prior to joining Vorys served for 16 years as a justice on the Supreme Court of Ohio, was honored with The Justice League of Ohio’s Models of Justice award, during the organization’s 10th Anniversary Celebration Awards Ceremony. The Justice League of Ohio is a non-profit legal clinic that provides free legal assistance to crime victims.
The League’s Executive Director, Catherine Harper Lee, presented Stratton with the award. During the presentation, Harper Lee noted:
“With retired Justice Stratton’s valuable mentoring, The Justice League of Ohio has been able to work through the complexities of the criminal justice process. Her guidance helped establish the organization as a non-profit for the protection, preservation and advancement of the legal rights of Ohio’s crime victims.”
At Vorys, Stratton works with firm clients in a variety of areas, including health care, litigation and appellate work. She also assists Vorys Health Care Advisors, a wholly owned subsidiary of the firm that helps health care providers, business decision makers and professional associations deal with health care issues.
