Area attorneys to be honored March 2

The Criminal Defense Attorneys of Michigan selected Margaret Sind Raben as the recipient of its Right to Counsel Award.

The award recognizes the outstanding contributions of a group or individual in the form of legal representation or other extraordinary service.

Said CDAM President Patricia A. Maceroni: “Peggy’s intellect, grit, and integrity are matched by her compassion for her clients. She is an inspiration to all of us practicing criminal defense and CDAM is honored to present her with the Right to Counsel Award.”

Jill Leslie Price will receive CDAM’s Extraordinary Service Award for her more than 30 years of volunteer work for CDAM.

“The Extraordinary Service Award has only been given out to one other person in CDAM's history,” said Maceroni. “Jill Price richly deserves to be the second recipient.”

Price helped spearhead the establishment of CDAM’s Trial College and educational programming. She served as Education Committee Chairperson for many years.

Raben and Leslie Price also are past presidents of CDAM.

CDAM’s Annual Dinner and Awards Banquet is Friday, March 2, at the Auburn Hills Marriott, Centerpoint Parkway, in Pontiac. The cocktail reception begins at 6:15 with dinner at 7 p.m. For those interested in attending, visit Tickets are $75 per person.
