Thirteenth Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Service Awards - These awards recognize Hillsborough County lawyers, law firms, or organizations that in 2018 made significant contributions of pro bono legal services to poor individuals, or to charitable organizations whose primary purpose is to provide non-legal assistance to the poor.


The Jimmy Kynes Pro Bono Service Award - This award recognizes a Hillsborough County attorney who for many years has made significant contributions to ensure legal services are available to persons who otherwise could not afford them. It is dedicated to the memory of Jimmy Kynes, who served as Florida Attorney General and later as General Counsel of the Jim Walter Corporation in Tampa. Following the establishment of the BAVLP in 1982, Mr. Kynes worked with the program to recruit local bar members to provide pro bono assistance. Mr. Kynes' own pro bono service over many years, as well as his recruiting efforts, inspired private attorneys (including corporate counsel from local companies) to interview and advise indigent clients at intake sessions. Mr. Kynes' commitment to the provision of pro bono assistance is reflected by, and continues through, the efforts of the recipients of his award.
