Outstanding Volunteer Attorney Award
This is a picture of me with California Chief Justice Ronald George (on the right) and San Francisco Superior Court Presiding Judge Robert Dondero (on the left), after I was presented with an Outstanding Volunteer Attorney Award (which looks nicer than that orange envelope in which it was presented).
Many attorneys received awards at the San Francisco Bar Association ceremony earlier this year. This supports my theory that the legal profession is a helping profession and that, like so many other noble professions, too often the bad ones taint the reputations of the rest of us. I just want the public to know there are so many of us who are giving back to our communities. The Volunteer Legal Services Program of the San Francisco Bar Association is just one of the ways.
