Former AAML Florida President David Manz just received the prestigious Pro Bono Award from the Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice and Florida Bar President for “outstanding efforts above and beyond the call of duty to serve the legal community and state.”

Manz, of the Florida Keys, and member of AAML Florida’s Board of Governors, received the Florida Bar President’s Pro Bono Award for the Sixteenth Judicial Circuit in Monroe County. Manz, of Manz Law in Marathon, is an active pro bono participant with Put Something Back and many worthy causes. A leader among the family law bar, he has taken over ten family law and guardianship matters for Put Something Back in the past few years expending hundreds of hours on matters for clients with nowhere else to turn for assistance.

“David’s tireless work ethic and commitment to helping families in need is truly inspiring, “said AAML Florida President, Natalie Lemos.”We are so proud to see one of our own honored for doing what he loves – helping struggling families in our community.”

This award is presented annually to those who give freely of their time and talent to make legal services available to the poor. For more information on pro bono opporutnies visit dadelegalaid.org.
