The criteria has been developed from those qualities that David Hjortsberg gave to our profession: a solo or small firm practitioner who is intelligent and knowledgeable in the law, hardworking and tenacious, yet respectful and civil to every party, witness and attorney case, views the practice of law as a profession and takes personal pride in his/her work, and he/she is active in his/her community, their local bar and the State Bar.
The Section is seeking nominations from attorneys, local bar associations and the judiciary recommending nominees for this award. Anyone who has worked with a solo or small ﬁrm attorney whom you believe is an exemplary attorney and helped or encouraged you to be a better attorney, who was a gentleman/gentlewoman, who worked hard, who was respectful to your clients and witnesses yet was a tenacious advocate on behalf of his/her client, and is the kind of an attorney with whom all attorneys want to work, and emulate – we encourage you to nominate them for this award.
The award will be presented at the MSBA Legal Summit & Annual Meeting on Friday, June 15, 2018 immediately following the Solo/Small Firm Practice Section’s “Practice Management Software v. None” program.
