Best Best & Krieger LLP is pleased to congratulate Partner Joseph Van Eaton, who was awarded the International Municipal Lawyers Association’s prestigious Charles S. Rhyne Lifetime Achievement in Municipal Law Award, the highest award given by IMLA. The award was formally announced on September 30 at IMLA’s Annual Conference.
“I can’t think of another lawyer more deserving of this award. I have had the honor of witnessing Joe’s dedication to advocating for municipal and local government authorities for more than 16 years,” stated BB&K Partner Gail Karish. “Joe’s list of decades-long accomplishments is inspiring, in addition to his tremendous skills as an educator and thought leader. He is always approachable and encouraging discussion. He has an amazing talent for seeing a creative way forward to resolve a given issue where others see no path. He has made me a smarter and more thoughtful lawyer, and I know many others can say the same.”
