Mintz – On April 9, 2019, the Massachusetts Office for Victim Assistance (MOVA) and the Victim and Witness Assistance Board (VWAB) will honor individuals who have made notable contributions to advancing victim rights and services in Massachusetts. Mintz will be presented with the Corporate Leadership Award.
The Corporate Leadership Award is a prestigious honor for a business, organization or individual from a discipline outside of the victim assistance field for their dedication to supporting crime victims and advancing the victim services community.
The award is to recognize Mintz’s notable pro bono and community service contributions to advancing victim rights and services and making a difference in the lives of victims and survivors in Massachusetts. For almost thirty years, the firm has made a strategic commitment to combating domestic violence and sexual assault. Mintz has represented countless individual victims, assisted with appellate advocacy, successfully lobbied for legislative reforms, and represented dozens of related nonprofits in numerous matters. The firm has also focused its community service efforts and charitable donations on survivors of gender violence, including supporting MOVA’s training efforts with annual scholarships for victim advocates. Mintz’s victim advocacy has extended beyond domestic violence and sexual assault, representing victims of economic crimes, sex trafficking survivors, homicide victims’ families, and victims of the Boston Marathon.
The 2019 Victim Rights Month Award Ceremony will be held at the Massachusetts State House.
