Attorney Barbara J. King will receive the 2011 Justice Award from the Schenectady County Human Rights Commission.
King was nominated for her work in creating the Modest Means Panel Program for the Schenectady County Bar Association. Now in its second year, the program provides reduced-fee legal services to low-income litigants who cannot afford the cost of good representation.
King leads the family and matrimonial practice area at Tully Rinckey PLLC, a Colonie-based law firm. She joined the firm in 2007.
