We are please to announce that Attorney Michael Strauss has been selected to receive the 2019-2020 Richard H. Teas Legislative Support Award by the Illinois State Bar Association’s Standing Committee on Legislation.
Michael was nominated by Attorney Gary Schlesinger to receive this award, which is conferred by the ISBA. This award acknowledges an ISBA member’s meritorious service provided in support of ISBA’s legislative efforts in the Illinois General Assembly.
The award is given in memory of Richard H. Teas, a long-time member of the ISBA Trusts and Estates Section Council, who contributed hours of his own time in analyzing, drafting, and testifying on legislation. He was highly respected by legislators and legislative staff for his competence, ethics, and diplomacy.
In the past, the ISBA has presented each award winner with a plaque in recognition of their service to the profession at an awards reception over the summer. Unfortunately, they are unable to plan an event at this time, but plan to have a reception to honor Michael and all award winners in the future. More details about the event will be forthcoming. In the meantime, the ISBA will plan to acknowledge Attorney Michael Strauss in the Illinois Bar Journal as well as other publications.
The attorneys and staff at Schlesinger & Strauss, LLC, the ISBA and the Standing Committee on Legislation thanks and congratulates Mike for his efforts and service.
