Spring 2015 Spotlight

Boulder County Legal Services (BCLS) celebrated the outstanding tradition of pro bono service in Boulder County at the Annual Pro Bono Luncheon, held April 6th, 2015, at the Boulder Marriott.  BCLS honored local attorneys, mediators, law students, and paralegals who volunteered 5,875 hours in 2014 to provide legal services to low-income residents of Boulder County. Boulder County Bar Association president Star Waring presented the bar’s highest award, honoring Tucker Katz with the John Robert Marshall Award for his dedication in providing legal services to the poor.   Star Waring, president of the Boulder County Bar Association, presented the award, which is awarded annually in honor of John Robert Marshall, a local attorney who tirelessly advocated for the poor.  Tucker Katz was recognized for his unflagging commitment to pro bono service, his deep commitment to the community he serves, and his dedication to upholding the high standards of the legal profession. Colleagues remarked on his keenly developed sense for the plight of his fellow citizens who have no access to the legal system because they cannot afford a lawyer, his fairness as an advocate, and his caring and empathetic manner.
