The MSBA Family & Juvenile Law Section presented its 2018 Beverly Groner Family Law Award to Maryland Court of Special Appeals Chief Judge Patrick L. Woodward during its “When Immigration and Family Law Matters Collide” program on June 15 at the MSBA Legal Summit & Annual Meeting in Ocean City, Maryland.

Created in 2002, the Groner Award recognizes an attorney who has served the Maryland legal community through his or her dedication to the practice of family law, exemplifying the highest professional standards during a distinguished career. It provides a vehicle for highlighting the importance of family law to our community, and to celebrate those who improve family law practice in Maryland. It is named in honor of the late Beverly Ann Groner, the Maryland family law practitioner whose long, distinguished career featured chairing the state commission which researched and drafted the present Marital Property Act and Alimony law.
