Recognition from the Frederick County Bar


At the Annual Judges Banquet of the Frederick County Bar Association on October 19, Chief Attorney Nina Shore and Staff Attorney Katherine Jones from Maryland Legal Aid's Midwestern Maryland office were presented with the Gordon Cooley Pro Bono Award for their activities with the Frederick County Bar. Gordon Cooley is a prominent, local lawyer and banker who was an early member of Maryland Legal Aid's Equal Justice Council (EJC). He led the Frederick County Bar's effort to relocate the Midwestern Maryland office from a dilapidated space to its current, centrally located and better appointed location.
