The Florida Chapters of the American Board of Trial Advocates recognized Wayne Hogan with the Fran Coker Community Service Award. The Award recognizes an individual whose dedication to the community exemplifies the character, commitment and accomplishments of Fran Peacock Coker. “As lawyers, any one of us in our organization, by reason of our experience, education or training, could become trial lawyer of the year for the local ABOTA chapter or FLABOTA,” said Hogan. “But to receive an award that honors Fran Coker means the world to me. She served as an example of what you can do apart from the law to help your community,” he said. Coker, the late author who wrote several children’s books featuring Jacksonville, displayed a tireless devotion in the area of children’s literacy, an issue important to the administration of justice and preservation of trial by jury. Wayne is the fourth recipient of this celebrated award. Of the four recipients of the award, three are from Jacksonville.
