Jacksonville Attorney Andrea Reyes Honored for Pro Bono Work

Jacksonville attorney Andrea Reyes receives Florida Bar President’s Pro Bono Service Award



Congratulations to Jacksonville attorney Andrea Reyes on receiving the 2018 Florida Bar President’s Pro Bono Service Award for the 4th Judicial Circuit.  According to the Daily Record, the annual award recognizes an attorney in each of the 21 judicial circuits for having freely given their time and expertise in making legal services available to the poor. Reyes, who was nominated for the award by the Jacksonville Women Lawyers Association, has contributed more than 300 hours of pro bono service focused on immigration law with 11 pro bono cases still pending. “That is an exceptional contribution, especially for a young lawyer who is running her own practice,” said association President Jennifer Shoaf Richardson. This is the third consecutive year that a woman lawyer has been selected to receive the award for the circuit. Click here to read the entire story.
