Columbus, OH (Apr. 3, 2019) – On Wednesday, April 3, the Ohio State Bar Foundation (OSBF) awarded its District 10 Community Service Award for Attorneys 40 & Under to Christopher L. Brown.

Brown currently serves as Deputy Law Director for the City of Mansfield where he works on a wide variety of matters, from police policy and employment issues to tax issues and inter-governmental relations.

Brown is also very active with the Ohio State Bar Association. He serves as Chair of the organization’s Young Lawyers Section, which, by its own initiative, created a pro bono service opportunity for new lawyers to help members of the public navigate the increasingly difficult world of driver’s license reinstatement.

“Christopher uses his time and talents to better his community and the law profession,” said Lori Keating, Executive Director of OSBF. “His dedication is inspiring and one of the reasons why he was awarded our District 10 Community Service Award for Attorneys 40 and Under.”
