Dallas Constable Michael Orozco has been selected as the recipient of the DAYL Liberty Bell Award for 2023. Constable Orozco is the Constable for Precinct 5 in Dallas County. The DAYL Liberty Bell Award criteria states that it recognizes a non-lawyer who “has made selfless contributions to our community to strengthen the American system of Justice and help others better understand and appreciate the law.” Constable Orozco has served with compassion and has equipped his deputies to handle sensitive situations by coupling service to community with his obligations to enforce the law. He and his deputies provide assistance to tenants and those who support them by allowing full access to government records and making connections to other government agencies, when needed. In his duties surrounding evictions, he has gone above and beyond by hosting public information events and referring in nonprofits like the Dallas Eviction Advocacy Center to assist some of our most vulnerable neighbors as they face difficult circumstances. It is for these reasons and more that Constable Michael Orozco is the 2023 DAYL Liberty Bell Award recipient.
This award will be presented at the Dallas Bar Association’s annual Law Day Luncheon on Tuesday, May 16, 2023, at noon, at the Arts District Mansion.
