  • One of the most prestigious and coveted legal awards an attorney in the state can receive. The award is sponsored by the Madison based Wisconsin Association For Justice and is presented at the discretion of the Association’s President. Because the award is not necessarily presented annually, it adds tremendous significance to the recipient, and is presented at a special event held in Milwaukee. The President’s Award is given to an individual who has been of outstanding service to the community and the practice of law. It bestows special recognition to a person who, in the course of zealously representing their clients or in the advocacy for the voiceless, pursues and helps achieve substantive changes in the law, improves the civil justice system, enhances the rights of citizens’ access to the courts, preserves the right of trial by jury, or enhances the right of everyone to attain full, fair and timely remedies for civil wrongs., President's Award, Wisconsin Association For Justice, 2017
