Roxanne Eberle, an attorney at Bellevue’s Wild Sky Law Group, received the Washington State Association for Justice’s 2012 "Ready to Soar" Award at its annual convention.
The award acknowledges the achievements and contributions of attorneys in practice less than five years who have demonstrated excellence and professionalism in their legal practice.
Eberle was nominated by her peers for her efforts to "protect and promote a fair justice system," and "to ensure that any person who is harmed by the misconduct or negligence of others can obtain justice in America's courtrooms."
Award presenter and WSAJ President-lect, Steve Bulzomi stated, "This lawyer has advanced the rights of her injured clients. She inspires confidence and gives clients hope that their lives will improve."
"Being acknowledged for the work I do to help people is the best thing that has happened in my legal practice," said Eberle. "I've worked hard to make a difference for my clients and community. It is satisfying to know that my peers recognize my efforts."
Eberle, who is the founder of Wild Sky Law Group, graduated from the University of Washington Law School in 2008.
"After being a paralegal for 13 years, I realized I wanted to make more of a difference and returned to school to obtain my law degree and become a personal advocate for others. I expanded my personal injury law practice to include consumer bankruptcies because many people are struggling to recover in this economy and need a fresh start," Eberle said.
WSAJ’s "Ready to Soar" award is presented once a year at the association's annual convention. Eberle is the first solo practitioner to be awarded this honor since the award’s inception in 2008.
Wild Sky Law Group is a plaintiffs' personal injury and bankruptcy law firm.
