2007 Recognition Awards

Dawn Carlson Award

Chief Justice Russell Anderson and Katie Trotzky following the Minnesota Legal Services Coalition’s awards ceremony.

Our own Katie Trotzky of Legal Assistance of Dakota County was awarded the Dawn Carlson Award for “unwavering commitment to family law clients.” Katie received the award at the Minnesota Legal Services Coalition’s biannual statewide conference. Chief Justice Russell Anderson received the Pro Bono Publico Award at the ceremony as well.

Thanks to Katie’s many years of dedicated service in providing legal representation to low-income people, she is an indispensable asset to volunteer attorneys. If you have any procedural or substantive law questions about your pro bono case, please feel free to contact Katie for assistance! Congratulations Katie!
