January 21, 2020

Maslon is pleased to announce that Jon Parritz, attorney in Maslon's Litigation Group, will be honored with the 2020 Sidney Barrows Lifetime Commitment Award by the Twin Cities Cardozo Society during its Twenty-First Annual Dinner on October 26, 2020. Created in memory of Sidney Barrows, one of the founding chairs of the Cardozo Society, the award is given annually to a senior attorney or judge in the Twin Cities who exemplifies excellence in his or her practice, community service in the Jewish and general community, and life-long learning. Past honorees include our late partner and founder Marvin Borman—the very first recipient of the Award in 2000—as well as Maslon Partner Bill Pentelovitch in 2014 and Howard Tarkow in 2016.

A long-time community volunteer and leader within the Jewish community, Jon currently serves as a member of Twin Cities Cardozo Society's Steering Committee and was past Co-Chair for the organization. He has also served as a leader and volunteer for numerous organizations and foundations such as: Co-Chair of the Metropolitan Jewish Council, Vice-President of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas, and past President and board member of the Jewish Federation of Greater St. Paul and Talmud Torah of St. Paul. Jon also regularly provides pro bono legal services as a volunteer with Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid and Southern Minnesota Regional Services.

The Twin Cities Cardozo Society is an affinity group for Jewish attorneys, judges, and law students, sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Greater St. Paul and the Minneapolis Jewish Federation. Its mission is to strengthen bonds among legal professionals through educational, social and philanthropic activities, and offer opportunities for communal involvement and leadership.
