Ken Bouchard was the founding member of Bouchard, Keinman & Wright, P.A.. He was a man of imposing intellectual ability and a driving force at the firm he created all those years ago. He remained a skilled and tenacious lawyer right up to his retirement. Sadly, Ken developed young-onset Alzheimer’s Disease, a terrible afflication that robbed him of those attributes which made him such an imposing figure in any courtroom. In the end, it took much more, including his life. His accomplishments were many and are listed below. We have preserved his bio in honor of a man that was our mentor and our friend.
