Legal Protection Legal professional Receives Excellent Citizenship Award – Log Cabin Democrat

Conway prosecutor Charles Finkenbinder presented trial attorney and family lawyer Landon Sanders with the Outstanding Citizenship Award on Friday for his work for the community, particularly in Sobriety Court.

Finkenbinder selected Sanders for the award because of his dedication to community service.

“He’s not paid, he’s a volunteer,” said Finkenbinder. “This is a real cost factor for a lawyer. Landon devoted 75 or more hours of his time to the sobriety program. It’s a real price to pay, but he doesn’t see it that way. Landon sees it as a way to help his community, as a way to return the blessings received, and to increase the security of his community. “

District Court Judge Chris Carnahan also recognizes Sanders’ contribution and service to the Faulkner County’s people.

“When a lawyer gives up the number of hours he’s given up, he’s doing an excellent job and he doesn’t have to,” he said. “I can’t thank him enough.”

A graduate of both Conway High School and the University of Central Arkansas, Sanders has always been committed to giving back to the community he has always called home.

“This is my community and I want to be able to give something back to it,” he said. “This is a great place to live and I just want to make sure I can give back the best I can and this was just the perfect opportunity to do so. It makes the community healthier and safer overall. “

Finkenbinder and the city’s prosecutor launched the Outstanding Citizenship Award to recognize the community’s public service.

“It’s about recognizing citizens’ volunteering, but also showing and setting an example of what can be achieved when we put the needs of others above our own,” he said.

Sanders says he never expected to receive such recognition for the time and effort he put into helping others.

“It was an honor to receive this award,” he said. “I didn’t ask for it, but I appreciate it. It is good for me to know when people recognize when one can help. “
