TLAP Mentor Recognized for Service

Memphis lawyer Bill Robilio has been named the Stephenson Todd Volunteer Attorney of the Year by the Tennessee Lawyers Assistance Program (TLAP). Robilio, a member of the Shelby County Public Defenders Office, has been a volunteer mentor to fellow lawyers in crisis since TLAP was established in 1999. Prior to that, he worked with Lawyers Helping Lawyers, a similar service of the Memphis Bar Association. The award was presented to Robilio at TLAP’s recent retreat at Montgomery State Park. The Commercial Appeal has comments from Judge Robert Childers, while a press release from the chief public defender praises Robilio's work.
