MTACDL - Lawyers of the Year
2013 John Adams Award - Lisa Bazant
Lisa Bazant, right, with a client
From the 2013 presentation speech, March 14, 2013:
The 2013 honoree is always available to the Federal Defenders office when we are in a “crunch.” This lawyer responds willingly to last minute appearances with no expectations in return. The award recipient is a positive, zealous advocate, always very prepared and professional. This panel member attends all CJA panel meetings and is well respected in the community, seeking feedback from and providing valuable assistance to FDOM and panel colleagues alike.
This is a passionate defense attorney, achieving both trial and appellate wins. In just the last six months, the attorney has had notable sentencing results including a sentence of Probation in a Conspiracy to Manufacture Marijuana case and another Probationary term in a case of Burglary Involving Controlled Substances.
For 2013, the gallant, generous, and selfless service of John Adams is best exemplified by Lisa Bazant.
