Kenneth Yablonski was a noted attorney with the firm of Yablonski, Costello and Leckie in Washington, Pennsylvania. Kenneth Yablonski was born in 1934 to Joseph "Jock" and Ann Huffman Yablonski. He obtained a bachelor's degree from Waynesburg College in 1956 and received his J.D. from West Virginia University College of Law in 1959. In 1961, he co-founded the firm of Yablonski, Costello and Leckie, and remained with the firm for the rest of his life. In 1964, Yablonski won a precedent-setting case involving benefits to survivors of a mine disaster. A mine explosion occurred at U.S. Steel's Robena No. 3 Mine in Greene County, Pennsylvania on December 8, 1962. A total of 37 miners lost their lives. Yablonski won a court order forcing the local coroner to perform an inquest, which subsequently provided evidence that helped the families win expanded survivors' benefits from the Pennsylvania Workmens' Compensation Board.
