The Massachusetts Bar Association recently recognized Springfield City Solicitor Edward M. Pikula for his volunteer efforts when the Bar Association celebrated the efforts of its volunteers at their Annual Volunteer Dinner held in Randolph, Massachusetts.
Pikula, who has served as Springfield’s City Solicitor since January 2006, is the vice chair of the Massachusetts Bar Association’s Public Law Section. He was recognized for his volunteer work in aiding the public and the bar in the wake of last June’s devastating tornadoes, and sharing his knowledge and experience in the Lawyers Journal, a publication for the Massachusetts Bar Association.
“City Solicitor Pikula was an essential part of my team in the days and weeks that followed the June 1st tornado and other unprecedented weather disasters last year,” stated Mayor Domenic J. Sarno. “This is a terrific opportunity to express my congratulations to Attorney Pikula for his ongoing efforts on behalf of the City and our residents.”
Edward M. Pikula stated “It is an honor and a privilege to serve the City as its Lawyer, where I grew and have raised a family. Public service through the Bar Association is a chance to give back.”
