Congratulations to the 2019 Winners

The 2019 Difference Makers Awards were presented during the Difference Makers Awards Luncheon with Keynote Speaker Laura V. Farber on Friday, October 18, 2019, at the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort in Carlsbad, California.

The GPSolo Difference Makers Awards recognize extraordinary individuals who “make a difference” by breaking down barriers through community service, pro bono work, or service to the profession.

Making a Difference Through Community Service

This award honors an attorney living or deceased who made a significant lifetime contribution to the local community through community service (not necessarily through bar work or pro bono work per se).

Making a Difference through Pro Bono Work

This award honors an attorney, law firm, corporate legal department, government attorney office, or institution in the legal profession that has made an outstanding commitment to volunteer legal services for the poor and disadvantaged (i.e., it recognizes an outstanding local attorney or group that does pro bono work).
