The Pennsylvania Bar Association last month recognized state Court Administrator Geoff Moulton as the 2020 recipient of the C. Dale McClain Quality of Life/Balance Award.
Although the award would typically have been presented during the PBA’s annual luncheon, this year’s ceremony was held via Zoom – where PBA President David Schwager and Immediate Past President Anne John presented the awards virtually.
Granted by the PBA Quality of Life/Balance Committee, the annual C. Dale McClain Award recognizes the substantial contribution made by a Pennsylvania attorney in identifying issues relevant to balancing the professional and personal lives of their peers, as well as the progress made in assisting attorneys in maintaining and improving their overall quality of life.
The committee’s message of recognition read as follows:
Hon. H. Geoffrey Moulton Jr. has contributed in many ways to help improve the quality of life for lawyers, particularly during the pandemic. In leading the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts, he has taken steps to assure the safety, wellbeing and quality of life of lawyers and particularly those appearing in the courts at hearings, arguments, trials and conferences. He has responded with actions needed to overcome obstacles presented by the courts being closed due to COVID-19.
Chief Justice Thomas Saylor extended congratulations on behalf of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court: “This well-deserved award honors Geoff’s contributions in navigating both the changing circumstances of the pandemic itself and the evolving health guidance affecting lawyers and court proceedings throughout the state.” The AOPC joins the Supreme Court in offering congratulations to Geoff.
