We believe lawyers, judges, community members and organizations who fight to improve the law and build a better justice system deserve to be recognized for their efforts. Our award winners lead their communities in volunteer service both in and outside of the legal profession.

Do you know a civic-minded attorney, committed to serving the community who deserves to be recognized? Tell us how amazing they are - nominations are due by June 1.
