The Canadian Bar Association, Saskatchewan Branch has announced that Melvin A. Gerspacher of Robertson Stromberg Pedersen LLP is its 2011 Community Service Award recipient.
The Community Service Award was created to recognize valuable contributions of CBA members who have demonstrated outstanding dedication, service and commitment in serving the communities of our province.
