Lifetime Achievement Award Nominations Sought

The Justinian Society and the Comisky family are seeking nominations for the inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award in memory of Marvin Comisky and Judge G. Fred DiBona, to be awarded at the Philadelphia Bar Association's Quarterly Meeting and Luncheon scheduled for this spring. The Lifetime Achievement Award is not limited to an area of practice or an advocate for a particular cause. Rather, the purpose of the award is to recognize an outstanding member of the bench or bar who, at a minimum, satisfies the following qualifications: acts as a superb mentor and advisor to clients, the Bar, the judicial system and/or the community; makes a difference in the lives of others irrespective of race, ethnicity, religion, disability, gender or sexual orientation; demonstrates a willingness to do what is right although sometimes unpopular; demonstrates legal acumen or scholarship; and exhibits great humility.

A charitable contribution will be made on behalf of the recipient to an organization of the recipient's choice.

Nominations should include the nominee's name, address and a statement of the nominee's qualifications. All nominations should be mailed to Thomas H. Chiacchio Jr., 2005 Market St., Suite 1930, Philadelphia, Pa., 19103 or may be emailed to chiacchio@thclaw.com. Nominations must be received no later than Monday, Jan. 16.
