The Alameda County Bar Association presented Levy Vinick Burrell Hyams with the Distinguished Service Law Firm Award during the annual meeting and Installation of the 2022 Board of Directors on April 7, 2022. The event took place at Tilden Park’s beautiful Brazilian Room.
ACBA President Pamela Ross introduced the firm as “a leader for equity and inclusion from the makeup of their firm to the way they interact with their clients, each other, and the legal community.” Leslie Levy accepted the honor and recognition on behalf of LVBH. She focused her acceptance speech on the on-going need for civil rights attorneys, saying,
discriminatory attitudes and discrimination are not dead. They were most recently on full display at the highest levels of government in the employment interviews of Ketanji Jackson Brown. While it brings a smile to our face that she was confirmed, unfortunately it is not evidence of a new and more just society. At least, not yet.
Noting that LVBH is now in its thirteenth year as a firm, Ms. Levy commented “We owe our success to our internal collaborative process and our belief that we can make positive change in the world through our passionate representation of our clients.”
Everyone at LVBH is honored by this recognition, including all of the LVBH attorneys, paralegals and staff.
