Beth Mora Wins Joe Posner Award from California Employment Lawyers Association

Beth Mora has been a very good friend of Contra Costa Lawyer magazine over many years. She has served as an author (of 12 articles), guest editor of two issues and was a past member of the Contra Costa Lawyer Editorial Board. In September of this year she was honored by California Employment Lawyers Association with its highest award, the Joe Posner Lawyer of the Year Award. The press release stated, “This recognition is a testament to Beth’s unwavering dedication to advancing worker’ rights, her exceptional legal advocacy, and her timeless efforts in bettering the employee rights’ community.”

We certainly agree. Beth has been a member of the CCCBA Pro Bono Honor Roll regularly, clocking over 500 hours of pro bono service each year. She won the CCCBA’s highest pro bono honor last year with the 2022 Justice James J. Marchiano Distinguished Service Award. The award’s namesake, Justice James J. Marchiano wrote, “Beth Mora epitomizes a lawyer’s dedication of legal skills to pro bono publico work and brings luster to the award.”

On behalf of the Contra Costa County Bar Association and all of us at Contra Costa Lawyer magazine, we congratulate Beth on this most recent honor. Beyond that, we appreciate all that she brings to the Employment Law Section and to the CCCBA.
