Mary Ann Morgan Receives the Orange County Bar Association’s William Trickel, Jr. Professionalism Award for 2023


Each year the Orange County Bar Association bestows its highest honors on a select few members of the legal community whose demeanor and lifelong work exemplify the model of accomplishment which stands on integrity and unparalleled professionalism. As the OCBA’s highest honor, the recipients of the William Trickel, Jr. Professionalism Award share several traits. They all are nominated by their peers based on the attorney’s commitment to service both service to the community and to the profession, unwavering ethical conduct, courteous behavior, high moral standards, and professional behavior, and have practiced law for 15 or more years. Mary Ann Morgan displays all these traits and is honored to be selected by her peers for 2023.

Mary Ann also congratulates her fellow award recipient Judge Roy (Skip) Dalton who is the winner of the James G. Glazebrook Memorial Bar Service Award and Annie Kwong, winner of the Lawrence Matthews Young Lawyer Professionalism Award.
