These awards include the Charlotte Miller Mentoring Award, the James Lee Mentoring Award, and the Paul Moxley Mentoring Award. All recognized nominations will be included in a published booklet in appreciation of our great mentors. Nominations should be substantive, and included details including how the attorney mentor exceeded expectations in the mentoring relationship.
