Ratzan Weissman & Boldt is proud to announce that Attorney Ryan C. Tyler has been recognized by the Florida Bar Association for his work as a Pro Bono attorney. Congratulations, Ryan! Ryan was also the recipient of the 2021 Equal Justice Pro Bono Small Firm Award from Legal Services of Greater Miami. Read more about Ryan's recognition in The Miami Herald and El Nuevo Herald.

According to the Florida Bar

"The Florida Bar will recognize 20 lawyers for their work on behalf of low-income and disadvantaged clients at a Jan. 20 ceremony at the Supreme Court of Florida.

Established in 1981, The Florida Bar President’s Pro Bono Service Awards are intended to encourage lawyers to volunteer free legal services to the poor by recognizing those who make public service commitments and to raise public awareness of the substantial volunteer services provided by Florida lawyers to those who cannot afford legal fees. Florida Bar President Mike Tanner will present the 2022 awards.

The awards recognize pro bono service in each of Florida’s 20 judicial circuits. They are presented annually in conjunction with the Tobias Simon Pro Bono Service and other service awards, which are given by the chief justice of the Florida Supreme Court.

In the most recent reporting period from July 1, 2020, to June 30, 2021, Florida lawyers provided more than 1.5 million hours of pro bono services to those in need $6.7 million to legal aid organizations."

Outstanding work, Ryan, and congratulations again!
