The annual Access to Justice Awards Dinner, celebrating the great work of legal aid and pro bono programs in northwest Ohio, is scheduled for Tuesday, April 30, 2013 at The Pinnacle, located at 1772 Indian Wood Circle in Maumee, Ohio.

Award recipients for 2013 include: Ken Leslie, recipient of a Community Advocacy Award, known for his work with issues affecting the un-housed since 1990 when he founded the first ‘Tent City” in Lucas County; John Murray, Leslie Murray, and Michael Stewart of the Murray & Murray law firm located in Sandusky, Ohio are being honored with a Public Interest Law Award for their work in protecting the rights of area Latinos being profiled by law enforcement agencies; and David J.
