Hill Ward Henderson is proud to announce that Shareholder Robert A. Shimberg, and his wife, Michelle, were recently presented The Cox Media January 2018 “Community Hero” award. The Shimberg’s were honored with this award for their efforts and impact on the community with the jobs program they established in partnership with the Men of Vision (MOV) organization.
The Shimberg’s established the MOV jobs program three years ago as an outlet to help mentor under-resourced young men in the community. MOV is committed to creating successful young men and community leaders by providing educational programs, mentoring, professional preparedness, community service opportunities, and many more resources to these young men.
Over the three years the jobs program has been in place, MOV and the program have flourished as it continues to achieve MOV’s mission of recognizing and developing constructive leadership. In addition, the program emphasizes acceptance of individual responsibility as the basis of personal success, community improvement, and group achievement. As a testament to their efforts, ten young men involved in the MOV program were placed in jobs this past year.
Robert is a Shareholder in the firm's Litigation Group. His primary practice areas include commercial litigation, corporate compliance, governmental relations and criminal defense.
