Attorney Bonnie Hoffman was chosen as this year’s Robert C. Heeney Award recipient. NACDL’s most prestigious recognition, the Heeney Award is given annually to the member who best exemplifies the goals and values of the association and the legal profession. Hoffman received the award on July 27 at NACDL’s Annual Meeting in San Francisco, Calif. Describing Hoffman’s dedication to justice, NACDL Immediate Past President Steve Benjamin said, “Apart from her public defender duties and her substantial work for NACDL, Bonnie Hoffman has a commitment to public and pro bono service that makes her extraordinary.”

A deputy public defender in Leesburg, Va., Hoffman is certified in misdemeanor, felony, juvenile and death penalty representation by the Virginia State Bar. She currently serves on NACDL’s Board of Directors and has served as co-chair of NACDL’s Indigent Defense Committee.
