Florida Bar Association Confers President's Pro Bono Service Award On Steven D. Kramer of Kramer Law Firm

ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla., Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- The Florida Bar Association awarded the President's Pro Bono Service Award for the 18th Judicial Circuit to Steven D. Kramer of the Kramer Law Firm during a ceremony at the Florida Supreme Court on January 31, 2013.

(Photo: ) Kramer Law Firm associate attorney, Justin Seekamp -- who has himself been recognized as the 2012 Pro Bono Champion by Community Legal Services of Mid-Florida, Inc. -- states, "This award is an affirmation of Mr. Kramer's, and our entire firm's, dedication to serving the Central Florida community and those most in need." Kramer is known for accepting laborious and complex cases that other attorneys have often declined. One case involved a disabled child who was at risk of being expelled from school or placed into an alternative school for misconduct, which was a manifestation of the child's disability. Kramer referred the child to a psychiatrist for evaluation, and together with the psychiatrist, was able to educate the school committee at a hearing that the child's misconduct was a manifestation of his disability. Despite favorable recommendations at the hearing, the school's administration referred the child to the alternative school against medical advice. Kramer advanced the matter to the school board level and on the threshold of significant litigation and administrative proceedings; he was able to have the child reinstated at his high school.

During even the best economic times, pro bono legal services are necessary to ensure that community residents and the poor have access to legal representation. Kramer received the award partly because he has provided more than 1000 hours of pro bono legal services to the poor of Central Florida. Kramer, "selflessly serves the people of Seminole County with distinction," accords James J. DeKleva who endorsed Kramer for the award.

Kramer is also known for his "Kramer Makes the Call" legal segment on Real Radio's show Monsters in the Morning, during which Kramer answers phone-in legal questions and educates listeners on their legal rights. Kramer has earned a reputation in Orlando as an adroit litigator with creative and novel approaches to seemingly typical cases. He has been recognized with numerous "top lawyer" and "best lawyer" accolades both in Orlando and nationally.

The Kramer Law Firm is a full-service law firm that represents clients in business law, real estate law, family & divorce law, estates & trusts, bankruptcy, and injury & accident law. Kramer Law is known as a creative, small law firm that outpaces much larger firms by combining superior service with the fearless litigation style and resources of a larger law firm.

Is Your Network Ready for the Internet of Everything?

The telephone industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation that began with the introduction of IP-based data networks in the early 1990s and then with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in the late 1990s, and it now includes all forms ofvoice, video, and messaging communications.

Building a Secure and Scalable Multimedia IP Exchange

As fixed and mobile operators increasingly move to IP-based networks, the complexity required to interconnect these networks grows dramatically. Faced with increasing competition from all corners and constant challenge to grow revenues, operators are struggling with the variety and disparities in partner and customer networks.

How Carriers Can Optimize for LTE Roaming

Connectivity between mobile network operators (MNO) in 4G LTE is much more complex than it was in legacy networks.This complexity is primarily due to the change in focus. LTE is not a voice-focused roaming environment, but rather a datacentric environment.
