On August 2, 2017, Rubin Fortunato Shareholder Jason Roberts was honored as a member of the 2017-2018 class of the Top 40 Under 40 Nation’s Best Advocates by the National Bar Association (“NBA”), the nation’s oldest and largest international network of predominantly African-American attorneys and judges. The Awards Gala took place at the Fairmont York Hotel in Toronto, Canada during the NBA’s 92nd Annual Convention.
The NBA’s 40 Under 40 Nation’s Best Advocates Awards recognize the top talented individuals (age 40 and under) principally within the African American legal community, who have achieved prominence and distinction, professionally and philanthropically. The awardees represent a cross-section of legal professionals, including lawyers from big, medium, and small firms, solo and industry practitioners, government lawyers, judges, academicians, corporate counsels, young elected officials, and various other lawyers, all of whom are using their law degrees in innovative and community-impacting ways. Inductees are chosen based on their achievement, innovation, vision, leadership, and legal community involvement.
