Boies Schiller Flexner Partner Steve Zack was profiled in the 40th Anniversary edition of the American Lawyer, as a recipient of one of the magazine's 2019 Lifetime Achievement awards.
Zack, who came to the United States as a refugee from Cuba, served as the first Hispanic president of the American Bar Association. He chairs Boies Schiller Flexner's diversity committee, and he is president of the ABA's not-for-profit arm, the American Bar Endowment, where he spearheaded an effort to bring more attorneys to the U.S.-Mexico border to assist immigrants in court.
“I think I have made ours a more diverse profession, hopefully a more civil profession,” Zack told the magazine. “And I tried to maintain the professionalism of the law, as opposed to simply the business of the law.”
He will be honored at the 2019 American Lawyer Industry Awards in December.
