Partner James Shaw, Jr. was awarded the American Civil Liberties Union’s Greater Tampa Chapter First Amendment Award. James has a 20-year history with the organization that began in high school and continued throughout college and his professional career. He is the Chair panel for this organization and has held this title for over 10 years. In this panel, James and other volunteer attorneys meet regularly to review complaints and act on them. Sometimes this requires a simple phone call to fix the complaint, other times it could be as extensive as filing a suit through cooperating counsel. James’s “tireless dedication to civil rights and civil liberties” was one of many reasons that the ACLU honored him with this award at the Florida Annual meeting.
