The First Annual Julie Martin-Korb Award for Excellence in Advocacy Award was presented to Daniel A. Katz, Esquire, for sharing Julie’s special qualities, including a passion about workers’ rights, a selfless willingness to help others, excellence in legal research and writing, and high ethical standards. Many members responded at and after the conference, stating that MELA had made the right choice in presenting the award to Danny.
