Lawyers hand out awards at annual luncheon

The Evansville Bar Association and Volunteer Lawyer Program of Southwestern Indiana held their annual joint awards luncheon Wednesday.

This year's Doran Perdue Service Award went to the EBA Access to Justice Committee, consisting of Charles Hewins, Chair, Emily Baxter, Jean Blanton, Joe Langerak, Beverly Corn, Karen Heard, Superior Court Magistrate Jill Marcrum, Garvin Senn, Krista Hamby Weiberg, Tracy Thread, Scott Wylie and Ted Barron.

The Doran Perdue Service award was established to honor those members who have provided outstanding service to the bar association during the preceding year or outstanding service on an association project, committee or section. Access to Justice Committee members audited current services offered by various organizations that serve low-income residents of Southwestern Indiana, including overlaps and gaps in services, and prepared a "blueprint" of the services of each organization, which will be distributed to educate EBA members, community shelters and others in the public. The committee also raised nearly $5,000 to help organizations that provide legal services to low income residents.

Attorney Phil Siegel received the Susan K. Helfrich Award for Excellence in Pro Bono Service by the Volunteer Lawyer Program of Southwestern Indiana. The award is given to the attorney or law firm whose actions exemplify a true commitment to making justice accessible to all people regardless of economic ability.

Chrissy Heim of Jones Wallace received the Florence Britzius Award to recognize the legal secretary who has shown outstanding commitment to the profession and the legal community.

Kathy Feldmeier of Ziemer, Stayman, Weitzel and Shoulders received the EBA Outstanding Paralegal Award. The award was established in 2009 to recognize those who have provided outstanding service to the Evansville legal community.
