Each year, the Family Law Section presents an Award of Distinction to a member of the bar, the judiciary, or the public who has provided outstanding service in the realm of family law. Nominations are requested for lawyers, judges, or citizens connected with family law, who have distinguished themselves during their career in the advancement of family law in Idaho. Section membership is not a requirement, though the support of the Family Law Section might well be one of the elements of the nominee’s distinction on behalf of family law.
The Family Law Award of Distinction in 2020 was awarded to Frederick G. Zundel during the 2020 Family Law Fall Conference that was held virtually on October 23, 2020. This is the presention of the award to Fred on behalf of the Family Law Seciton by Jennifer M. Schindele, an At Large Member of the Governing Council.
