Joseph M. Kosydar Award for Professionalism

Established in memory of Joseph Kosydar, a long-time Lane County Deputy District Attorney who passed away in 1997. The idea came for the award from the judges who valued Joe’s professionalism and civility and who wanted to periodically recognize attorneys in the Bar who exemplify those qualities. It was not the intent of the judges, however, to limit the award to trial lawyers.
