Mohamed Sheriff to receive a 2015 New York City Bar Association Legal Services Award
The Bronx Defenders is proud to congratulate Mohamed Sheriff, our Senior Legal Advocate, who will receive a 2015 New York City Bar Association Legal Services Award! Sheriff is one of five honorees who will receive the Legal Services Award for his outstanding work and dedication in providing free civil legal assistance to indigent New Yorkers.
The Legal Services Awards were established to recognize the efforts of lawyers and non-lawyers who have directly provided free legal services to indigent clients on a full-time basis for an extended period of time. The 2015 Awards will be presented by the Honorable Sheila Abdus-Salaam, Judge of the New York State Court of Appeals, at the Twenty-sixth Annual Legal Services Awards Presentation on Wednesday, June 10.
Sheriff, who joined The Bronx Defenders in 2003, is a fearless advocate, role model, and mentor who demonstrates the kind of passion, persistence, and kindness to which we should all aspire. Congratulations, Sheriff!
