Community Service Recognition
Pierce County is filled with attorneys who help needy clients without any expectation of pay; who teach classes on legal principles just for the satisfaction of helping others understand the legal system; who help children navigate the confusing and terrifying world of the courts solely because they care about children.
The Community Service Awards was created for two reasons: First, to say thank you to those attorneys who are using their legal skills in their personal time to help make Pierce County better. These attorneys are helping our community grow stronger. Through their efforts, our citizens are better understanding the legal system and better able to assert their rights.
The second goal of the awards is to spread the word of what our colleagues are doing. Perhaps these attorneys’ actions will inspire others.
The committee solicits nominations from bar members and present them to the President for evaluation and discussion. The President makes the final choices with input from the committee.
