Advocating for the Latinx Legal Community Through Education and Mentorship
Partner Daniel Mateo is one of three law professionals who will be honored with the Top Lawyers award at the annual AL DÍA Lawyers Forum & Reception event on October 1, 2019. Mr. Mateo wants to use his recognition as an opportunity to provide education and mentorship to the next generation of Latinx lawyers.
"There are a number of reasons for the under-representation, but the lack of role models I believe is the most significant." said Partner Daniel Mateo. "In order to create a pipeline, young Latinx students need to believe that becoming a lawyer is not only possible, but there is a road map that will help them achieve that goal," added Mr. Mateo.
