Economic Justice Practice Group Leader
West Memphis, AR
Kevin De Liban manages the Economic Justice practice group of Legal Aid of Arkansas, working with low-income Arkansas to address legal issues involving health, employment, safety net benefits, and education. He also regularly represents individuals facing domestic violence. With Legal Aid, he has led a successful litigation campaign in federal and state courts challenging Arkansas's use of an algorithm to cut vital Medicaid home-care benefits to individuals who have disabilities or are elderly. In addition, he and Legal Aid of Arkansas, along with the National Health Law Program and the Southern Poverty Law Center, successfully challenged Medicaid work reporting requirements in federal court, ending the state's unlawful use of red-tape that stripped health insurance from over 18,000 people. In 2018, Kevin was a featured speaker at the AI Now Symposium, a gathering of technologists, academics, and advocates focused on imposing accountability on the expanding use of Artificial Intelligence and related technologies. His work has appeared on or in MSNBC, PBS Newshour, Time, the Washington Post, the Economist, the Verge, and other national and state publications. When not practicing law, Kevin is passionately creating music as a rapper.
