October 13, 2016
Foley Hoag LLP pro bono managing attorney Rebecca Cazabon is the recipient of the 2016 MAHA Leadership Award, given by the Massachusetts Association of Hispanic Attorneys (MAHA). The award will be presented on October 13, 2016 at the organization's annual awards cocktail reception.
Cazabon is being recognized for her longstanding advocacy in promoting social justice for victims of domestic and sexual violence, as well as her dedication and commitment on behalf of the Commonwealth's most vulnerable.
As managing attorney for Foley Hoag's pro bono program, Cazabon coordinates and oversees all pro bono work for the firm and facilitates pro bono training initiatives. She also represents low-income domestic violence and sexual assault survivors in abuse prevention, immigration, privacy, housing, criminal advocacy and appellate matters.
Cazabon was previously named one of Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly’s “Top Women of Law,” the publication’s annual survey of women lawyers who have demonstrated outstanding accomplishment in private practice, corporate law, and social advocacy.
Founded in 1985 as an affiliate of the Hispanic National Bar Association, MAHA strives for the continued professional development of Hispanic attorneys, judges and law students in Massachusetts. This year’s awards theme, “Nurturing Our Roots and Redefining Our Tomorrow,” is based on MAHA’s appreciation for the service bestowed by its predecessors while acknowledging the significance of evolutionary growth required to promote the stature and contributions of Latinos in the legal profession.
