U.S. District Court Judge (and nominee to the Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals) Andre M. Davis was the guest speaker at today’s 12th annual Equal Justice Council Awards and Recognition Breakfast at Camden Yards. “Not all lawyers appreciate their obligation to be available for pro bono service,” Davis told 190 lawyers, judges, political leaders and other legal professionals. “Process matters. And fundamental fairness of the legal system is something we can be proud of in the justice system. I salute what you’re doing and those who support Maryland Legal Aid.” This year’s awardees: Andrew D. Freeman, Stanford G. Gann Jr., and Sayra Wells Meyerhoff (Champions of Justice Award); Mark A. Stanley (Young Lawyers Division Leadership Award); Miles & Stockbridge and Rosenberg Martin Greenberg (Pacesetter Award); DLA Piper US and Venable LLP (Trailblazer Award); and G. Daniel Shealer Jr. (Executive Director’s Award). The Equal Justice Council is the private-bar fundraising arm of Maryland Legal Aid.
