Shutts & Bowen LLP is pleased to announce that Tampa attorney Elizabeth King was recently honored as the recipient of the 2020 Thirteenth Judicial Circuit’s Outstanding Pro Bono Service By A Young Lawyer Award, in recognition of her dedication to exceptional pro bono service to the community.
The Thirteenth Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Service Awards recognize Hillsborough County lawyers, law firms and organizations that make significant contributions of pro bono legal services to those who could not otherwise afford them, or to charitable organizations whose primary purpose is to provide non-legal assistance to low- or no-income individuals. Elizabeth’s commitment to service for the public good has made a tremendous impression. She devoted more than 100 hours to pro bono work in 2019 alone, which includes volunteering time with Crossroads for Kids, Inc. as an attorney ad-litem, advocating for children in the foster care system. She has committed her time to assisting those who are most in need of her help, the disabled and children.
Elizabeth was recognized for her hard work and contributions to the community over the past year at the virtual “13th Annual Thirteenth Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Service Awards Ceremony,” presented by the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Committee and the Volunteer Lawyers Program of Bay Area Legal Services, on October 27, 2020. Presenting the award to Elizabeth was Ella Shenhav, a Shutts partner who was recognized with the same service award in 2017 and is a member of the firm’s Pro Bono Committee.
