The Maine Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (MACDL) was established in 1992 to give support and training to criminal defense attorneys practicing in the state of Maine. On the first Friday in June each year the organization host an annual meeting and legal seminar.
At the annual meeting, MACDL presents two awards, the President's Award and the Unsung Hero Award.
Members must be Maine criminal defense attorneys, actively engaged in the defense of criminal cases. The applicant must also support the purposes of MACDL by certifying his or her commitment to the fair administration of criminal justice and the defense of individuals accused of criminal acts. Judges and prosecutors are not eligible to join or remain in the Maine Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
This award is given each year to the criminal defense attorney who best exemplifies the highest level of commitment, passion, and tireless pursuit of justice in the representation of indigent defendants.
