Jenner & Block Partner James H. Feldman has been awarded the 2014 Michael S. Cohen Award, given annually at a prominent continuing education event sponsored by the Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education and the Illinois Chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.
Named after one of the original supporters of the Annual Business Valuation, Tax and Financial Issues in Divorce Seminar, the prestigious award recognizes an attorney who has shown “dedication, commitment and significant contribution to the continuing legal education of matrimonial attorneys and the character that Michael brought to his profession.”
Jim was nominated by fellow family law attorneys and selected by a committee comprising past award recipients, who include family law attorneys as well as domestic relations judges, most recently, the Hon. Edward R. Jordan and Hon. Rodney W. Equi. He was presented with the award before nearly 250 attendees at the 2014 Martin Luther King Day program.
