Maslon is pleased to announce that Julian Zebot, along with his fellow members of the MSBA's Access to Justice Committee, received the 2019 Minnesota State Bar Association (MSBA) President's Award, which is presented to commend one or more attorneys who are actively involved in the legal profession and who combine excellence in professional service with outstanding service to and on behalf of the Minnesota State Bar, the legal profession, or the public, with attention to efforts to improve the administration of justice and practice of law, efforts to promote access to justice, efforts to serve and govern the profession, and service of benefit to the community. Julian was recognized both for his contributions as a member of the Access to Justice Committee and for his additional efforts to help the legal profession increase access to justice for all Minnesotans.
As an active member, and past co-chair, of the MSBA Access to Justice Committee, Julian is dedicated to advancing the organization’s mission to encourage lawyers to participate in local volunteer attorney and judicare programs, and to support statewide programs providing civil legal assistance to people who would otherwise be unable to afford it. His contributions span many organizations and efforts in this regard, including participation on the MSBA Pro Bono Council and service on the Board of Directors for both The Fund for Legal Aid and Volunteer Lawyers Network. Julian is also an active pro bono volunteer and has been recognized on MSBA North Star Lawyer List for the last 5 consecutive years. Most recently, he was honored as part of a Maslon team with the Light of Justice Award by the Texas Defender Service and as a 2018 Attorney of the Year by Minnesota Lawyer for precedent setting work in a decade-long pro bono representation of a man on death row.
Julian, partner in Maslon's Litigation Group, focuses his legal practice on probate, fiduciary, and trust litigation as well as business and commercial litigation. He has counseled and represented individual and business clients in both federal and state courts as well as arbitration proceedings, and he has handled matters for clients at all stages of the litigation process, including mediation, trials, and appeals. When not litigating and resolving disputes, Julian is a frequent author and speaker on topics relating to probate, fiduciary, and trust litigation, fiduciary risk management, and professional ethics. He is recognized on the 2019 Minnesota Super Lawyers® list.
