I got a call late yesterday from the Executive Director of the Washington State Trial Lawyers Association that I will be receiving the “Public Justice Award” at the May 1 Law Day Diner. Once again humbled. It goes to show that if you stick around long enough someone will notice.
The award is for “an individual or organization whose efforts, courage, litigation or innovative work results in the creation of a more just society.”
The Washington State Trial Lawyers Association represents attorneys and professionals in the legal field committed to champion the cause of those who deserve redress for injury to person, property or civil rights. Established in 1953, the association conducts legal education, compiles research, facilitates the sharing of resources and implements the public affairs as well as government relations programs.
