The State Bar of New Mexico honored NMCLP Executive Director Kim Posich with the 2015 Distinguished Bar Service – Nonlawyer Award at a moving ceremony on October 1. The award recognizes nonlawyers who have provided valuable service and contributions to the legal profession over a significant period of time. In a letter from Joe Conte, Executive Director of the State Bar of New Mexico, told Kim, “Your commitment, contributions, dedication and leaders with the Center on Law and Poverty, as well as your efforts to expand and increase equal access to justice for all New Mexicans, make you most deserving of this special award.”
NM Legal Aid celebrated Kim and the other State Bar of New Mexico Honorees by holding a viewing party at their office. NMCLP staffers and Kim’s friends and family who couldn’t make the trip to Colorado Springs to see him accept his award in person watched New Mexico Civil Legal Services community. Thank you to NM Legal Aid for this event!
