Ozburn wins community service award

Superior Court Judge Samuel D. Ozburn is one of 10 recipients of the 12th Annual Justice Robert Benham Awards for Community Service.

The awards were presented on Tuesday, in recognition of lawyers and judges in Georgia who have made significant contributions to their communities and demonstrate the positive contributions of members of the Bar beyond their legal or official work, according to a release.

The deserving judges and attorneys have served a wide range of community organizations, government-sponsored activities, and humanitarian efforts outside of their professional practices. Their fields of service include: youth athletics and mentoring programs, literacy programs, social services, church and religious activities, politics, promotion and support for legal aid programs, community development, education, sports, recreation, and the arts.

These awards recognize the commitment of Georgia lawyers to volunteerism, encourage all lawyers to become involved in community service, improve the quality of lawyers’ lives through the satisfaction they derive from helping others, and raise the public image of lawyers. All honorees are members of the State Bar of Georgia.
