ST. JOHNS COUNTY LEGAL AID presented its annual pro bono awards to private attorneys who have donated the most hours of free service to the poor, elderly, and disabled in St. Johns County. “We hit financial hardships four to five years ago and asked the bar to step up and help those in need,” said Megan Wall managing attorney of St. Johns County Legal Aid. “A record number of winners this year — part of the centurion club — all did 100 hours or more.” Pictured from the left in the back row are Judge John Alexander, Jim Kowalski, Judge Clyde Wolfe, Virginia Morgan, Judge Scott DuPont, Jay Grife, Judge Howard Maltz, and Wall. In the front from the left are Cheryl McCray, Rusty Collins, Tania Schmidt-Alpers, and Howard McGillin. Honored but not pictured were Brandon Beardsley and Mina Bustamante.
