Earlier this month, The Legal Intelligencer announced the winners of their 2022 Professional Excellence Awards. These awards honor a variety of professional achievements throughout the Pennsylvania legal community. Among the award recipients are Disciplinary Board and Hearing Committee Members.
Pittsburgh attorney Laura E. Ellsworth, whose term as a Board Member commenced May 1, 2022, is named one of the “Unsung Heroes” of the profession. Attorney Ellsworth is an active civic and community leader, and her prolific pro bono and nonprofit work includes teaching law classes in inner-city schools and conducting Lawyers Without Borders programs overseas. Her work with the Eradicate Hate Global Summit demonstrates her commitment to global citizenship. In 2016, Ellsworth received The Legal Intelligencer’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
Three current Hearing Committee Members are also 2022 award honorees. Pittsburgh attorney Lindsay Sherwood Fouse is named one of the “Lawyers on the Fast Track” while Philadelphia attorneys Gary Robert Gremminger and Mark William Tanner are named among the “Best Law Firm Mentors” and “Power Players”, respectively. Former Hearing Committee Member Joseph Juco Centeno is also among the “Best Law Firm Mentors”.
Honorees will be recognized at an awards dinner next month in Philadelphia.
The Board extends is congratulations to all award recipients.
