James Waite Mahoney Memorial Award
for Meritorious Service to the Juvenile Law Section

Jim Mahoney was one of the founders of the Juvenile Law Section of the State Bar of Arizona and a very active member until his retirement.  He served as a Chairperson of the Section, was a frequent contributor to the Section's newsletter, The Juvenile Clarion, and worked tirelessly to increase membership and "spread the word" among practitioners in the field of Juvenile Law about the Section's activities and benefits. 

Jim Mahoney passed away on February 2, 2007, before he was able to accept the inaugural James Waite Mahoney Award for Meritorious Service to the Juvenile Law Section.  The Award was presented to him posthumously at the Bar Convention on June 29, 2007.

This award will be presented annually at the State Bar Convention to a member in good standing of the Juvenile Law Section who has distinguished him or herself by meritorious service to the Section.
