Genecov says the award presentation was Dec. 4 during the Cardoza cocktail event at the home of Lisa Blue.
“I feel very honored,” Genecov says. “This is the second time the award has been presented.”
Genecov says the award was first presented to Bill Finkelstein, a member of Dykema in Dallas, and was named in his honor.
“The award is given to someone who has spent a lot of time working for the federation and doing things for the community,” she says.
Genecov says she has worked with the Jewish Federation since she came to Dallas in 1985, serving on its board of directors in the 1990s until the mid-2000s. In addition, Genecov says she served three times as chairwoman of the Cardoza Society, the leadership and programming arm of the federation’s Attorneys Division. Her years as chairwoman were in 2002, 2010 and 2011. She says she also has worked with the federation’s leadership development group to help train new leaders.
Genecov says she is a 1984 honor graduate of the University of Texas School of Law and is co-founder of the Center for Women in Law at the school. Her practice at Locke Lord focuses on regulatory, transactional and merger and acquisition matters in the health care industry.
