TACOMA, WA, February 2014 – Local attorney Mark Holcomb of Morton McGoldrick, received the Stan Naccarato Community Service Award presented by the Boys & Girls Clubs of South Puget Sound to a crowd of nearly 600 at the organization’s Legacy of Hope event in downtown Tacoma last Thursday night.

“Morton McGoldrick has provided exceptional pro bono legal counsel to the Boys & Girls Clubs of South Puget Sound for years,” said Mark Starnes, President/CEO. “This has resulted in ensuring the best interest of our organization while allowing us to direct our donors’ investments directly to serve the young people in our Clubs,” he added.

The honor was inspired by the dedication of one man, Stan Nacarrato, in 1992. Holcomb was chosen to receive this year’s honor due to his superior contribution to the community. Mark is the immediate past Chairman of the Board for the Mary Bridge Children’s Foundation. Over the years, he has served as board chair or in an officer capacity for several local organizations including the Tacoma-Pierce County Humane Society, American Leadership Forum, Children’s Museum of Tacoma and Job Carr Cabin Museum. Holcomb has provided pro bono services to many other non-profit organizations in the community, including countless hours to the Boys & Girls Clubs of South Puget Sound. He and his wife, Wendy, served as co-chair of the Pacific Lutheran University Parents Council.

Currently, he serves as Vice President of Morton McGoldrick, , one of the oldest law firms in the Tacoma-Pierce County area. His 26-year legal practice has been focused on real property and business. He also provides counsel to individuals and families on estate planning issues, and is experienced in probating of simple and complex estates, serving as trustee of family trusts for many clients.

In recent years, Mark has received recognitions from his alma maters, including the Distinguished Service Award for service to the university and his community from Indiana University School of Law in Bloomington, Indiana.
