John W. Ballou Award
Bonnie Steeves

The Maine State Bar Association is honored to present Bonnie Steeves, retired paralegal with Pine Tree Legal Assistance in Presque Isle, with this year’s John W. Ballou Award. Recipients of this prestigious award demonstrate qualities in keeping with the aims and purposes of the Maine State Bar Association, and emphasis is placed upon the contributions of non-lawyers. In a “Memorial to John W. Ballou,” adopted by the Board of Overseers of the Bar shortly after his death in 1993 at the age of 67, the Board called him “one of the ‘founding parents’ of the Board of Overseers, having served on the Commission appointed by the Supreme Judicial Court which created the Maine Bar Rules and established the Board and its Commission. He was elected as the chairman of the Grievance Commission, from its inception in 1978 to 1984, educating and advising its new members. John also served as a member of the Board of Overseers from 1978 until 1986 and served as its chairman from 1984 to 1986.” With degrees from the University of Maine and Yale Law School, he practiced law in his hometown of Bangor from 1952 until his death.
