Nominations sought for annual pro bono awards.

Lawyers who donate services to the needy are being sought for public recognition by the Supreme Court and The Florida Bar.

One lawyer from each judicial circuit and an out-of-state recipient will receive the Bar President's Pro Bono Service Award. The chief justice will give the Tobias Simon Pro Bono Service Award to the lawyer who is deemed an outstanding example of dedication to the legal needs of the poor.

Nominations also are being solicited for the Chief Justice's Law Firm Commendation and the Voluntary Bar Association Pro Bono Service Award. The awards recognize a firm and a voluntary bar association that have provided significant pro bono legal assistance to individuals or groups which cannot otherwise afford legal services.

Nominations may be made by any person or organization by contacting the circuit representative shown below. Nomination forms are available from the Bar's Public Information Department, telephone (800) 342-8060, ext. 5669, or via e-mail at jkrelldavis@flabar.org or can be downloaded off the "What's New" section of the Bar's Web site at www.flabar.org.

Eligible lawyers must be licensed to practice in Florida and not be employed by an organization which primarily delivers free legal services to the poor. The nominee should be a lawyer who, with no expectation of receiving a fee, provides direct delivery of legal services in civil or criminal matters to a client or group that does not have the resources to hire counsel.

The deadline is September 26.

The Florida Bar President's Pro Bono Service Awards were established in 1981 to recognize individual service in specific Florida judicial circuits.

The Tobias Simon Pro Bono Service Award commemorates Miami civil rights lawyer Tobias Simon, who died in 1982.

The chief justice's awards are believed to be the first of their kind in the nation conferring recognition of a state's highest court on a firm and voluntary bar for pro bono services.
