Texas RioGrande Legal Aid’s Julie Balovich was honored by the State Bar of Texas Poverty Law Section with an Impact Award as part of the annual Poverty Law Conference.

Balovich received the award for her work in Martinez v. State of Texas where a decision by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals vindicated the right of citizens against unconstitutional stops and searches by police.

A 1999 graduate of the University of Texas School of Law, Balovich is an attorney in TRLA’s Alpine office. She serves as the manager of TRLA’s guardianship team.
