The award acknowledges the exemplary pro bono work of two individual attorneys at the annual Justice for All Ceremony.
Partner Richard Mancino will receive the “Outstanding Pro Bono Volunteer Award” from the New York State Bar Association, in recognition of his tremendous dedication to pro bono service. The award will be presented to Mr. Mancino during the NYSBA’s Justice for All Awards Ceremony, to take place on January 21.
Over the course of his legal career, Mr. Mancino has devoted thousands of hours on pro bono matters, all while maintaining an active litigation practice. He has consistently dedicated himself to fighting injustice for the underprivileged through pro bono efforts on behalf of asylum seekers, the LGBT+ community, unrepresented children, low-income New Yorkers and others.
In recognition of his pro bono contributions, Mr. Mancino has been recognized as an NYSBA Empire State Counsel® honoree for several years. He was also awarded the New York City Bar Justice Center’s Jeremy G. Epstein Award for Outstanding Pro Bono Service and was named a “Lawyer Who Leads by Example” by the New York Law Journal for his “outstanding record of providing crucial legal services to poor or nearly poor New Yorkers.” In 2019, he was shortlisted for “Pro Bono Lawyer of the Year” at the Chambers USA Diversity and Inclusion Awards.
