Wilhelm H. Joseph Jr., Esq

Congratulations to our very own Wilhelm Joseph for being the Top Winner of tonight’s Leadership in Law Celebration sponsored by the Daily Record. Wilhelm was one of 28 honorees statewide. Also included as honorees were Martin Himeles, Jr., Managing Partner of Zuckerman Spaeder LLP, of Maryland Legal Aid’s Equal Justice Council, and representatives of many of the firms that participate in the Equal Justice Council.

As noted in the event program, through the Leadership in Law Awards, “the Daily Record seeks to spotlight the achievements of Marylanders who have -- and continue to -- contribute significantly and consistently to the legal profession. Winners must have devoted time and energy to bettering the legal profession, as well as the communities in which they live and work. They also must have mentored future professional and community leaders.”

The Top Winner is selected by a secret vote of all the honorees and is revealed at the conclusion of the awards ceremony. The announcement of Wilhelm’s award was met by rousing applause and a standing ovation by all in attendance. In his acceptance speech, Wilhelm commended the State of Maryland for its national leadership in the area of human rights and the staff of Maryland Legal Aid for their outstanding work. While Wilhelm is certainly the face of Maryland Legal Aid and an extraordinary leader, it is because of your exemplary efforts and unparalleled dedication to serving the legal needs of our state’s most vulnerable citizens that he and Maryland Legal Aid continue to be recognized as one of our nation’s finest legal services organizations.

Go Maryland Legal Aid!
