Miami, FL Bilzin Sumberg Baena Price & Axelrod is proud to announce that, litigation Partner Mitchell E. Widom was selected as a finalist for the Dorothy Shula Award for Outstanding Volunteerism. The award honors individuals whose volunteer work exemplifies the spirit of volunteerism and whose commitment to improving the lives of others has left a lasting positive impact. Each year, the United Way of Miami-Dade recognizes individuals who selflessly donate their time and efforts towards community improvement and empowerment.

More notably, however, is his work with the Keymorada tournament, of which he is the co-founder and co-chair, the proceeds of which benefit the CCFA.
