DALLAS (May 28, 2008) - Dallas lawyer and judicial candidate Ken Molberg was named the 2008 Attorney of the Year by the Dallas Democratic Lawyers Association at its May meeting.

In presenting the prestigious award, Association president Clay Jenkins noted Molberg's long service to the Dallas community and his longstanding role as counsel to the Democratic Party and many of its candidates. "In 2006," Jenkins said, "Ken single-handedly represented our candidates in eight separate legal proceedings back-to-back and won every one of them." Jenkins also noted that Molberg frequently represents persons of modest or few means "where other lawyers might hesitate to do so."

Many well-known area lawyers were in attendance at the event, including State Sen. Royce West and former Dallas Mayor Ron Kirk. Kirk quipped that "Ken should have been awarded Lawyer of the Century" for the work he has performed.

Molberg is the Democratic nominee for the 95th Civil District Court of Dallas County in the November 4, 2008, general election.
