Tallahassee Bar honors veteran public defender
The Tallahassee Bar Association recently presented its annual Lifetime Professionalism Award to Nancy Daniels, who served for 26 years as the public defender for Leon and five surrounding counties before her retirement in 2016. Daniels was instrumental in the development of the Second Circuit’s drug courts, mental health treatment initiatives, juvenile diversion and civil citation programs.
The Lifetime Professionalism Award is given to a lawyer, judge or law professor who for a period of at least 25 years has demonstrated professionalism and dedication to the legal profession and legal community through civil, community or legal service. Recipients must be TBA members.
