Meryem, who is a felony-level attorney in New Castle County, was awarded the 2020 Young Lawyers Distinguished Service Award for her advocacy to end debtors’ prisons.

Dawn, who is the ODS’s Director of Training and Development, received the 2020 Distinguished Mentoring Award for her many years of service, mentoring, and development of various training programs.

Congratulations to Meryem and Dawn for their well-earned achievements!
