Gary K. McKenzie to be honored for lifetime achievement

Gary K. McKenzie believes in the maxim: “Lead by example.” His work on behalf of the poor in Baton Rouge has inspired many colleagues to accept pro bono case assignments from the BRBF Pro Bono Project and to advance its primary goal of ensuring equal accessibility to justice for the underrepresented and indigent of our community. McKenzie, a partner with Steffes, Vingiello & McKenzie, donated more than 1,000 hours of his professional time and skill to representing pro bono clients referred to him by the BRBF Pro Bono Project. In honor of his pro bono efforts, McKenzie has been named the 2013 Louisiana State Bar Association David A. Hamilton Lifetime Achievement Award, which will be presented May 21, 2013, by the LSBA at the Louisiana Supreme Court in New Orleans.
