The 2023 class of OSBF Fellows were inducted by Chief Justice Sharon Kennedy at a ceremony at the Supreme Court of Ohio on June 13. As the Professional Honorary of Ohio Lawyers, the OSBF welcomes a new class of Fellows each year, a group of attorneys who exemplify the highest standards of professionalism and are committed to serving their communities. Since its inaugural Fellows Class in 1998, the OSBF has inducted over 1,000 Fellows.
“We are delighted to welcome a fresh set of Fellows into the Foundation community,” said Judge David Hejmanowski, OSBF President. “This is a diverse and inspirational group of lawyers with a strong dedication to service, poised to make significant contributions to the Foundation's goal of strengthening the justice system in Ohio through outreach and education.”
