AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION The American Bar Association recently honored three D.C.-area attorneys. Jeffrey Jacobovitz was named vice chair of the American Bar Association’s Criminal Practice and Procedure Committee. The three-year appointment began Aug. 8. Jacobovitz heads Schiff Hardin’s litigation practices and concentrates on antitrust, white-collar criminal defense, and civil litigation. Barbara Johnson was inducted into the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers of the ABA. She joins 10 other African-Americans among the 880 members and is the second African-American woman to be inducted. Election as a fellow is one of the highest honors the ABA bestows and is intended to identify integrity, dedication, and excellence in the practice of labor and employment law. Johnson is a partner in the employment law department at the D.C. office of Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker. Jimmie Reyna has been named to the ABA’s Presidential Advisory Council on Diversity in the Profession. The council offers programs and services to increase the number of minorities on the track to becoming lawyers. Reyna is a partner at Williams Mullen and is chair of the firm’s international trade and customs practice. As a special committee of the ABA board of governors, the Advisory Council on Diversity works to spearhead pipeline diversity issues, such as law school admissions, bar examination passage, and the paucity of minority males in law school.
UNITED WAY John Matteo, a partner at Jackson & Campbell, was named chair of the Montgomery County Regional Council of the United Way of the National Capital Area (UWNCA). The UWNCA facilitates opportunities to contribute to philanthropic agencies and help the poorest individuals in the community. — Nathan Carlile
