The Haitian Lawyers Association presented Rivero Mestre LLP with the 2011 Humanitarian Award.

The firm was recognized for its organization and co-sponsorship of the United for Haiti Fundraising Reception and for organizing an outreach program for the Haitian community. Haiti’s Consul General, Ralph Latortue,
presented the law firm with the award during a reception on June 8, 2011.

The firm organized the fundraiser just days following the deadly earthquake in Haiti last year. The event raised more than $30,000, which was donated to Doctors without Borders. The firm organized the outreach program to educate the Haitian community about many available resources that currently go unused. The fair brought together more than 20 legal and public service organizations.
