PWCBA Manassas, Virginia

Trial Attorney of the Year Award

The PWCBA began recognizing local attorneys for outstanding work as court-appointed attorneys in 1989. In 1995, the award was expanded to recognize the outstanding dedication, professionalism, and competence of court-appointed counsel in the Circuit, General District, and Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Courts in our jurisdiction. In 1994, the Bar presented the first Guardian Ad Litem of the Year Award.

In 2011, the Court-Appointed Attorney of the Year Award was re-named the Trial Attorney of the Year Award in order to recognize any attorney, not just court-appointed, whose practice in the courts of the 31st Judicial Circuit is exemplary.

The PWCBA seeks nominations for these awards from the courts and the awards are given at the annual Bench Bar Dinner Dance.
