Ratzan Weissman & Boldt is proud to announce that Attorney Ryan C. Tyler has been selected as the recipient of the 2021 Equal Justice Pro Bono Small Firm Award from Legal Services of Greater Miami - Congratulations, Ryan! This award recognizes attorneys who demonstrate "exceptional generosity and dedication in their Pro Bono efforts".
Legal Services of Greater Miami provides free civil legal services for the low-income communities of Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties and is recognized as one of the most outstanding pro bono legal services programs. They provide innovative, effective legal services which help thousands of individual community members annually, creating a positive impact on the community as a whole.
Ryan dedicated his personal time on two cases in 2021, one of which has currently undergone seven appeals and Ryan continues to be involved in the case to this day. In Florida, unlike some other states, Pro Bono work is not required by attorneys, making Ryan's efforts even more important and impactful in the greater Miami community.
The award ceremony was held virtually and live-streamed on YouTube. Ryan's acceptance speech can be seen in the video below.
Congratulations, Ryan, and thank you for dedicating your time and efforts to serving the greater good of the South Florida legal community!
