Paul Shalhoub Receives Pro Bono Award from the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach
Continuing Schwed Law’s long firm-wide tradition of giving back to the community in addition to representing those who have been injured by the negligence of others, Schwed Litigation Associate Paul Shalhoub was recently selected by the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County to receive a Silver Level Pro Bono Award. This level of recognition requires a recipient to perform 50-99 hours of annual pro bono legal services for those who could not otherwise afford legal representation. This volunteer work was performed by Paul in addition to and over and above his regular busy practice representing those who have been injured due to someone else’s negligence.
This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Paul’s commitment to serving his community. He is the Chairman and Co-Founder of the Palm Beach County Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Section (YLS) Annual No Shave November Event. The 2018 No Shave November event raised over $35,000 for the Cancer Alliance of Help and Hope – the most a single fundraising event put on by the YLS of the Palm Beach County Bar Association has ever raised. Over the six years that it has been held, No Shave November has raised over $130,000 for the Cancer Alliance of Help and Hope. In April 2019, Paul received the Champion of Help and Hope award from the Cancer Alliance of Help and Hope for his work in founding and chairing the No Shave November Event. In addition to his work with both the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County and the YLS, Paul also works as a volunteer for Lawyers for Literacy.
Beyond his pro bono work on behalf of the poor and underserved, Paul also has achieved great success in obtaining justice for those who have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence. He has received professional recognition for his work on behalf of the injured in the courtroom together with his commitment to his community, having had the honor of being selected as a Florida Super Lawyers Rising Stars in Personal Injury each year from 2017 to 2021. He also was recently named as one of the Top 40 under 40 National Trial Lawyers in the area of personal injury law.
