Business

Icard Merrill Shareholder John J. Waskom has been selected as the recipient of The Florida Bar President's 2022 Pro Bono Service Award for the 12th Judicial Circuit. This prestigious award is presented to an outstanding attorney from each of the state’s 20 judicial circuits and to an outstanding attorney among the out-of-state Florida Bar members. “The Board of Governors and the more than 109,000 members of The Florida Bar salute you for your service,” said Bar President Michael Tanner. “The time and professional expertise you have contributed to making legal representation available to those who otherwise would be unable to afford it show our profession at its best. It is my sincere hope that others in the legal field will follow your outstanding example.”

This is the third time an Icard Merrill attorney has been awarded this honor since its inception in 1982. In addition, the firm received the Chief Justice’s Law Firm Commendation Award in 2010 recognizing extraordinary commitment to provide access to the courts for all Floridians. Upon hearing of his selection, Waskom responded, “I'm of course very honored and surprised to receive this pro bono award. Being of service to the court and of service to those in need is an honor and a pleasure itself.”
