The annual Pro Bono Service Awards recognize outstanding commitment to providing legal services to Florida’s poor. The awards were given by the Florida Bar at a ceremony on Jan. 29th at the Florida Supreme Court.
Congratulations to Miller Elder Law Firm attorney Mary K. Wimsett on being selected as a Pro Bono award recipient.
The Eighth Judicial Circuit, serving Alachua, Baker, Bradford, Gilchrist, Levy, and Union Counties, was thrilled and honored to accept the pro bono award for Voluntary Bar Assciation and support our circuit winners Mary K. Wimsett and Marcia Green. It was an inspiring and incredibly special event.
This year’s awards ceremony also honors individual, circuit, law firm, young lawyer, state judicial, and federal judicial pro bono efforts.
