The Florida Bar to Recognize Local Attorney
Hand Arendall Harrison Sale Attorney Julia K. Maddalena Honored for Stellar Volunteer Service
Northwest Florida (January 17, 2019)—The Florida Bar will recognize Hand Arendall Harrison Sale LLC Attorney Julia K Maddalena along with 21 other Florida litigators in February for their pro bono work. The awards recognize and honor stellar volunteer service across the state. The attorneys of the Sunshine State provided more than 1.58 million hours of pro bono services in 12 months and more than $5.8 million to legal aid organizations.
“I’m honored to receive this award and my pro bono journey will not end here. We still have a lot of work to do in Northwest Florida, especially after Hurricane Michael,” states Julia Maddalena. “My attorney family here has set some high standards already this past quarter dealing with business interruption and a myriad of other post storm issues. The work continues. Thank you for the recognition and everyone’s support.”
The Florida Bar President’s Pro Bono Service Awards were established in 1981 to encourage lawyers to volunteer free legal services to those who cannot afford legal fees. The Florida Bar recognizes those lawyers who make public service commitments and aim to raise awareness of the volunteer services lawyers can provide to the public.
The event is scheduled to take place Feb. 7 at 3:30 p.m and will be held at the Supreme Court of Florida.
