To all of our members, we hope you enjoyed the holiday season and spent time with friends and family.

During the holiday rush, you may have missed an email from KBA President J.D. Meyer asking for volunteers to help with disaster legal assistance for those affected by the tornadoes that devastated western Kentucky. We wanted to remind our membership that the link to register as a volunteer with Kentucky Legal Aid is now open. If you can help, please go to and sign up. Once you are registered, Kentucky Legal Aid will match you with someone who desperately needs your help and expertise.

We have also reached out directly to Kentucky Legal Aid and the KBA, and Louisville Bar Foundation Executive Director Jeff Been is coordinating with his colleagues at the Kentucky Bar Foundation, to determine what more we can do to assist the people of western Kentucky. We will update you with more information as it continues to develop over the course of the region’s recovery efforts.
