Legal Services of Greater Miami presented its 2013 Equal Justice Leadership Awards to Judge Adalberto Jordan, U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit, and H.T. Smith.
The awards were presented at LSGMI’s Fourth Annual Heart of Giving Celebration, co-hosted by Florida Supreme Court Justices Fred Lewis, Barbara Pariente, and Peggy Quince at the Gary Nader Fine Art Gallery and attended by more than 400 members of the South Florida legal and business community and judiciary.
The Campaign for Justice, co-chaired by Raoul Cantero, Tracy Nichols, and Bob Parks, was created to raise community awareness about and support for LSGMI to ensure that access to the nation’s system of justice does not become a luxury. Proceeds of the event will be used to establish the H.T. Smith Law Student Fellowship at LSGMI and to support LSGMI’s ongoing services to the community.
“We are deeply grateful for the overwhelming support from the local community which has helped LSGMI to keep the promise of equal justice in both good times and bad,” said Marcia K. Cypen, LSGMI executive director.
