On behalf of the firm, Mintz’s Pro Bono Committee presents annual awards to attorneys who demonstrate exceptional leadership and commitment in the area of pro bono.
This year, litigation Associate Mathilda McGee-Tubb was named the 2019 Richard Mintz Pro Bono Award Recipient, and Member Emeritus John Regier was named the Pro Bono Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient. Both attorneys were honored at the firm’s annual Pro Bono Award reception held on July 22 in Boston and broadcasted to all offices.
The Richard Mintz Pro Bono Award is presented annually to an attorney who demonstrates exceptional commitment to pro bono work. The award is named in honor of Richard Mintz, the son of one of the firm’s founders, who in many ways embodied the generous spirit of Mintz and was a strong supporter of the firm’s pro bono contributions.
Litigation Associate Mathilda McGee-Tubb was recognized with the 2019 Richard Mintz Pro Bono Award for her leadership role in drafting an amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court for the Lawyers for Civil Rights and other high profile organizations challenging the inclusion of a citizenship question on the 2020 census form. Ms. McGee-Tubb also represented several at-risk pro bono clients, advocating on behalf of political asylees, minors seeking special immigrant juvenile status, and sexual assault survivors.
Member Emeritus John Regier was honored with the Pro Bono Lifetime Achievement Award for his distinguished service and significant contributions to the Mintz Pro Bono Program.
