FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Tripp Scott today announced that Douglas H. Reynolds, a director with the firm, is the 2019 recipient of the Russell E. Carlisle Advocacy Award.
The Russell E Carlisle Advocacy Award is given annually by Legal Aid Service of Broward County to an advocate whose actions exemplify a personal and professional commitment to making justice available to the poor and disadvantaged.
The award is named after attorney Russell E Carlisle, who for over fifty years, has been a local and national champion for pro bono services to the poor. Carlisle argued the first petition for interest on Trust Accounts (IOTA) before the Florida Supreme Court and led the national campaign to provide monetary resources to allow equal access to our justice system. Prior recipients include former Florida Supreme Court Justice Arthur England; former Circuit Court Judge Mel Grossman; and constitutional law expert Bruce Rogow.
Throughout his career Reynolds, who is Board Certified by the Florida Bar in Business Litigation and Marital and Family Law, has performed pro bono legal services in our community. In addition, Reynolds has been actively involved in various local non-profit corporations and schools. He presently serves on the Board of Directors of the Broward Public Library Foundation and the Offerdahl's Hand-Off Foundation, which annually conducts the John Offerdahl Gridiron Grilloff Food, Wine and Music Festival.
