Howard Talenfeld is the kind of lawyer I wish everyone knew about. He makes us all look good. Congratulations, Howard, on receiving this award for your tirelessly selfless work advocating for children:
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Feb. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Long-time child advocate and trial lawyer Howard Talenfeld has been selected to receive The Florida Bar President's Pro Bono Service Award for the Seventeenth Judicial Circuit, Broward County.
