It's why we all do it, isn't it?
Oh I kid, these folks are mensches, representing the best our profession has to offer, and are role models to all you youngsters too busy posting pictures of your food.
Watch it live at 3:30 p.m. today.
Here's one highly notable recipient: John Koyzak:
The Tobias Simon award was created in 1982 and is believed to be the first of its kind in the country conferring recognition by a state's highest court on a private lawyer for voluntary, free legal services to the poor. A permanent plaque listing the names of all award recipients hangs in the lawyers' lounge of the Supreme Court in Tallahassee.
John will receive his award at the Florida Supreme Court on Thursday, January 29th at 3:30 p.m. The award ceremony will be streamed live at http://wfsu.org/gavel2gavel.I really want to see John saunter down the red carpet.
Congrats to John and all the worthy recipients!
