HARRISBURG (March 13, 2008) - The Pennsylvania Bar Association Conference of County Bar Leaders (CCBL) has honored Alexander A. DiSanti of Media with its 2008 Gilbert Nurick Award for his commitment to the Pennsylvania and Delaware County Bar associations. The award was presented during the 42nd Annual Seminar of the Conference of County Bar Leaders, Feb. 29, in State College, Pa.

The Gilbert Nurick Award, which is named for the late Harrisburg lawyer who served as PBA president, is presented to a member of the Pennsylvania Bar Association (PBA) who exhibits dedication and service to the leadership and promotion of the organized bar and its activities.

He is a founder of the DCBA Inn of Court Section and a frequent presenter at numerous continuing legal education programs for Delaware County lawyers. DiSanti's exemplary efforts on behalf of the legal profession have been recognized with the E.
