On October 29, Frank won the prestigious G. Arthur Martin Criminal Justice Medal for lifetime achievement in criminal law.
Of Frank, the Criminal Lawyers’ Association had the following to say:
“A fixture at all levels of trial and appellate courts for the past four decades, Mr. Addario commands enormous respect across the justice system for his exquisite courtroom skills, his encyclopedic knowledge of criminal law and his sense of fair play. Mr. Addario is also renowned as a tireless leader of the defence bar and a mentor of young lawyers.”
