HAWL Trailblazer Award Winners

The HAWL Trailblazer award recognizes an established female attorney in the Tampa Bay area who has exhibited throughout her life and career a pioneering spirit, courageous leadership, outstanding contributions to the legal community, and who has refused to let her career and her contributions be limited or defined by the expectations of others.

These Trailblazers demonstrate a spirit of excellence that has lent credibility to the practice of law by women. They use their legal skills and knowledge to benefit those less able to protect themselves. HAWL upholds these award recipients as examples for others to follow.
