Javier Torres Selected to Valley Leadership Ready Together Program
Stinson LLP attorney Javier Torres was recently selected to the Arizona Valley Leadership's first-ever Ready Together program, a virtual cohort with a mission to identify and solve social issues perpetuated by the coronavirus pandemic.
During this year-long program, Torres and his fellow members from a diverse cross section of industries will engage in individual reflections, small group work and online sessions addressing the need for collaboration and systems building, issues faced by front-line workers, and the health of Arizona families and communities.
"Ready Together was created with the goal of addressing the issues Arizonans have faced during the COVID-19 pandemic, and preparing to come out of this stronger than ever," said Torres. "I'm excited to be a part of this effort and work with state and industry leaders to build trust in our communities and set ourselves up for success."
In addition to the Ready Together Program, Torres also serves on the State Bar of Arizona Appointments Committee, the Girl Scouts Arizona Cactus-Pine Council Board of Directors, the Ballet Arizona Education & Community Engagement Committee. In 2018, he was named a Leadership Council on Legal Diversity Pathfinder and is the current Phoenix City Lead for LCLD.
Torres is also the co-founder of PPE for Navajo First Responders, a program providing much needed personal protective equipment and supplies to over 80 organizations throughout the Navajo Nation through their PPE Pantry in Tuba City, AZ. Partnering with donors nationwide, the program has served EMTs, senior centers, food banks, health care facilities, fire departments, shelters and more, in order to protect an area especially hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In his practice, Torres has deep experience in complex business litigation, patent litigation and employment litigation, including wage and hour class actions for businesses of all sizes. He also counsels clients with respect to Navajo law, including labor and employment issues and Navajo preference laws.
