Maryland Legal Aid staff attorney Mike Jeffers, who works in the Baltimore Co. (Towson) office, was named Attorney of the Year by the Baltimore County Bar Association. From remarks by Towson attorney (and BCBA pro bono committee chair) Stanford Gann, Jr., who presented the award to Jeffers last week at a meeting of the BCBA: “In addition to serving as one of [Legal Aid executive director] Wilhelm Joseph‘s army of legal service providers at Legal Aid for the past 12 years, Mike served with distinction as a past chair of the Pro Bono Committee, serving admirably for a two-year term. . . . In addition to being a fierce proponent of legal services for those less fortunate and of pro bono causes, Mike is one of the most decent people you will ever know. When I had the pleasure of calling him to let him know he won the award, his instant response was modesty pointing out that he believed others were much more deserving. Well, I’m here to tell you Mike that this year, you are the most deserving person for the award and you exemplify everything that this award means–service to those in need, volunteering for the legal profession and your community, and answering the call.”
