WACDL Honors Three at Annual Awards Dinner

By Gerald Lippert

The Washington Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (WACDL) recently held its annual dinner in Chelan, Wash., where it presented its most prestigious annual awards. In recognition of her tireless advocacy on behalf of those accused of heinous crimes through her work on the House Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Committee, WACDL presented Washington State Rep. Sherry Appleton with its Champion of Justice Award. Additionally, Seattle lawyer Gilbert Levy received the President’s Award in recognition of outstanding service to the criminal defense bar in a particular case or series of cases, and Jeffrey Ellis received the William O. Douglas Award, WACDL’s most prestigious honor, given in recognition of extraordinary courage and dedication to the practice of criminal law.
