BoyarMiller Shareholder Hilary Tyson Receives Texas Access to Justice Award
HOUSTON (June 14, 2022) – We are proud to announce that BoyarMiller Shareholder Hilary Tyson received the 2022 Texas Access to Justice Commission’s Corporate Counsel Pro Bono Award.
The award is given in association with the Corporate Counsel Section of the State Bar of Texas to an outstanding corporate counsel attorney who actively provides pro bono legal services for the poor and promotes pro bono culture within the corporate framework.
Since 2021, Tyson has worked in collaboration with Lone Star Legal Aid to help preserve and protect home values and residential community character of the Houston/Trinity Gardens neighborhood, a historically under-served community, by creating and implementing deed restrictions.
“I am honored and humbled to receive this recognition that I share with my colleagues at BoyarMiller,” said Tyson. “As part of our firm’s core values, we seek opportunities to provide solutions that make a meaningful difference in people’s lives.”
Supreme Court of Texas Justice Brett Busby presented the award to Tyson during the State Bar’s annual meeting in Houston.
