The Florida Bar recognized 21 lawyers for their work on behalf of poor and indigent clients at a Jan. 30 ceremony at the Supreme Court of Florida.
Established in 1981, The Florida Bar President’s Pro Bono Service Awards are intended to encourage lawyers to volunteer free legal services to the poor by recognizing those who make public service commitments and to raise public awareness of the substantial volunteer services provided by Florida lawyers to those who cannot afford legal fees. Florida Bar President Eugene K. Pettis of Fort Lauderdale will present the 2014 awards.
