Amy M. Stewart, a Dallas-based lawyer and Founding Partner of Stewart Law Group PLLC, has received the Dallas Bar Association’s 2020 Presidential Citation for the ‘Rona Pep Talk webinar series.
Since March, Amy has organized and moderated 13 DBA sponsored webinars to discuss various issues affecting the lives of lawyers due to the pandemic. Topics range from race relations in the wake of the George Floyd murder, mental health and wellness, work life management for moms and dads, the future of virtual and live criminal and civil trials, the reopening of local law schools, and most recently, the plight of our local sports organizations’ legal counsel with COVID. Recordings of the presentations can be found on the DBA’s website.
“Thank you to the Dallas Bar for this recognition and their support of ‘Rona Pep Talks,” Amy said. “During this extraordinary time, I wanted the ‘Rona Talks to be a positive outlet for our legal community. I have enjoyed reconnecting with friends in the industry as well as making new connections. A special thank you to President Tobey, Alicia Hernandez, Kathryn Zack, and Yedenia Hinojos at the DBA for helping me create this series over the last seven months.”
This is the second time Amy has won a DBA Presidential Citation. Back in 2019, Amy was honored with a citation for organizing programming related to highlighting the impact of women legal leaders through her Pioneering Women Series, and assisting with initiatives led by President Laura Benitez Geisler, including the Life Skills for Lawyers series. Amy is also a board member of the DBA, a member of its Coronavirus Task Force, and a member of the 2020 DBA and Dallas Volunteer Attorney Program’s Equal Access to Justice Campaign.
