Nominations Sought for the Attorney J. Larry Hart Justice Award

J. Larry Hart

“Larry Hart had a brilliant legal mind. He was a leader in the legal community, a source of guidance to both judges and lawyers alike."

The West Pasco Bar Association, founded in 1996, is seeking nominations for the J. Larry Hart Justice Award. Every year, the Association recognizes an attorney or non-attorney who has significantly contributed to the justice system. The award, previously named the West Pasco Bar Association Justice Award, was renamed in 2018 in honor of the late Attorney J. Larry Hart who served as a pillar of the legal community for many years before his death in late 2017.

“Larry Hart had a brilliant legal mind,” said Attorney Edward D. Carlson, co-founder of Carlson, Meissner, Hart & Hayslett, P.A. “He was a leader in the legal community, a source of guidance to both judges and lawyers alike. Humble and dedicated to helping others, Larry’s absence has been felt by the entire West Pasco legal community.”

In 2018, the first J. Larry Hart Justice Award was awarded to Attorney Craig Laporte, a respected attorney, past president of the West Pasco Bar Association, and longtime friend of Attorney Hart. The West Pasco Bar Association is currently accepting nominations for the 2019 J. Larry Hart Justice Award, which will be presented at the West Pasco Bar Association’s Annual Installation Banquet on June 27, 2019 at Spartan Manor.
