The award is particularly meaningful to Judge Hirsch who was an admirer of and close friend of the late Judge Klein. Miami-Dade FAWL solicited letters of support from the community after several members nominated Judge Hirsch for the award. The responses were all expressions of overwhelming admiration and gratitude for Judge Hirsch and his contributions to the community. The following are excerpts from letters received by Miami-Dade FAWL: Dean Cece Dykas of St. Thomas University School of Law wrote, "Judge Hirsch has always encouraged our female students to lean in," and told of Judge Hirsh mentoring a female student who then worked for him upon graduation. When Judge Hirsch's mentee entered private practice, he stood by her as a mentor until she was standing strongly on her own. Attorney Aloyma Sanchez wrote that in 1988, when she had no trial experience, Judge Hirsch allowed her to second chair a case with him from intake through trial before Judge Moreno. One of Miami-Dade FAWL's missions -- and the goal of the two-day Trial Skills Program that Judge Gill Freeman organizes every year -- is to provide women attorneys with the skills needed to take a case to trial. Judge Hirsch and Miami-Dade FAWL have always been aligned in that respect. Judge Ursula Ungaro wrote that Judge Hirsch has served as a mentor "quite literally to a generation of young women who now form part of the legal community. He tried to community and to advance Miami-Dade FAWL's goal of p interests of women in the legal profession. Notably, this year FAWL has helped push through legislation to criminalize the distribution of non-consensual pornography, colloquially known porn." In doing so, President Baker acknowledged the unwav of the judiciary and assistance of our State Attorney, Katherine Rundle. Miami-Dade FAWL Director and Reception Committee Shulman, gave sincere thanks to all event sponsors, includin Title Sponsor, Wargo French, who helped make the event a tru In a heartwarming moment, President Baker presented FAWL's 2014 Theodore "Ted" Klein Award to the Honorable M who was a close friend of the late Judge Klein and who supporter of Miami-Dade FAWL's mission. The Award recog lawyer or judge in the legal community who has demonstrated dedication to women's issues. Judge Hirsch began his accept by calling to the podium Judge Klein's brother Hank and son with his characteristic wit noted: "For me, to see Hank and A Ted again. To see them is to be young again -- which at my ag the miraculous." Judge Hirsch then embarked upon his goal about "Ted," but to tell us "what Ted would tell you were h keeping with the theme of justice being held in our hands, J recalled the words of Winston Churchill, steering "confidently Gettysburg ideal of 'government of the people, by the people people.'" Judge Hirsch recognized that future generations of judges will look back on lawyers like Ted Klein, and organ Miami-Dade FAWL, and know that they cared to leave the la when they found it and to insist that justice be exercised for the This was a boom year for Miami-Dade FAWL's Scholarship Aw to the generosity of our scholarship sponsors and the h Scholarship Committee Co-Chairs, Katie Phang and Courtn Miami-Dade FAWL was able to provide 11 scholarships to d students in schools all across the State of Florida which w scholarships the organization has ever awarded and the f scholarships were awarded to recipients throughout Congratulations to the scholarship recipients including: T University of Miami School of Law, Dawn Boulding at University College of Law, Nancy Shalhub at University of Mia Law, Samantha Sobel at Stetson University College of Law, Ka Florida Coastal School of Law, Jihane Elizee at Florida University School of Law, Nejla Clavo at University of Miami S Janelle Vega at St. Thomas University School of Law, Jacqueli St. Thomas University School of Law, Nicole Fundora International College of Law, and Ileana Garcia at St. Thom School of Law.

Robin Kaplan, the founder and Chair of the Women's Initiative of the Federal Bar Association wrote, "[a]s a young woman in the criminal defense field, it was not always easy to navigate around egos and traditions, but Milton was different. He consciously makes room for women in our field." Nellie King, Past President of the Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers -- and the youngest and only one of four women to ever hold that position in its twenty-five year history -- said that as a solo practitioner and mother of two young children, she never would have achieved that leadership role without Judge Hirsch. She said: "Simply stated, I would not be where I am today without the support of Milt Hirsch." Judge Hirsch presides as an Eleventh Judicial Circuit Court Judge in Miami-Dade County in the criminal division and is an adjunct professor at the University of Miami School of Law and St. Thomas University School of Law. A graduate of Georgetown University Law Center, Judge Hirsch began his career as an Assistant State Attorney in Miami, Florida, after which he was in private practice as a highly respected criminal defense attorney. He is the author of a half dozen published law review articles on criminal and constitutional procedure. He is also the author of the novel The Shadow of Justice, which was named best novel of the year in the "mystery novel" category by the Midwest Independent Publishers Association, and which made Judge Hirsch a finalist for the coveted Benjamin Franklin award as "best new voice in American fiction." In 2011, he was elected without opposition to the bench. Judge Hirsch has been a longstanding member and ardent supporter of Miami-Dade FAWL. Judge Hirsch was the first male judge to host a Miami-Dade FAWL Table for Eight, and he delivered Miami-Dade FAWL's Law Day Program in 2013 and Judge Hirsch can be found at nearly all of Miami-Dade FAWL's events and is known for lifting the underdog to victory and for mentoring countless women and minorities.
