Get to Know Director’s Pro Bono Award 2020 Honoree Vincent Mora
February 12, 2021
At Ice Miller LLP, pro bono work is one of our greatest responsibilities.

To recognize the incredible pro bono efforts of those at Ice Miller, each year Director of Pro Bono Activities Diane Menashe selects five honorees to receive the “Director’s Pro Bono Award.” The Firm donates $500 to the nonprofit selected by each honoree.

The criteria for selection by the Director are as follows:
  1. Total hours of pro bono engagement for the year;
  2. Diversity of the pro bono work handled by the individual;
  3. The individual’s personal and professional growth from pro bono engagement;
  4. The initiative and leadership shown through the individual’s pro bono engagement; and
  5. The impact of the individual’s pro bono work on the community.
Let’s get to know 2020 honoree Vincent Mora.

Vincent’s 2020 pro bono work included participation in the Unemployment Clinic and Tenant Advocacy Project, both with the Legal Aid Society of Columbus. In addition, Vincent provided asylum assistance for a Guatemalan national through the Mississippi Center for Justice. He completed release requests for immigrants detained in ICE centers due to the COVID-19 pandemic through Civil Rights Education and Enforcement Center and assisted with the Wrongful Conviction Project through the Ohio Public Defender Office.   

“It’s important for the community to know we care, especially in 2020,” said Vincent. “2020 brought a lot of turbulence, and this was a great opportunity for us to help. I was focused on helping with matters that dealt with the pandemic, immigration and social justice.”

Congratulations to Vincent on a job well done in 2020. He selected UnidosUS to receive a $500 contribution. UnidosUS, formerly the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), is the nation’s largest Latino civil rights and advocacy organization. Click here to learn more about UnidosUS.
