Media Contact for Gina Cash, Director of the Office of the State Auditor’s Bureau of Special Investigations, Receives Top Women of Law Award
Boston — Yesterday, Gina Cash, director of the Office of the State Auditor’s Bureau of Special Investigations (BSI), was presented with a Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly Top Women of Law award. Cash received the award during a virtual ceremony held by the publication yesterday evening. She was recognized for her work to address public benefits fraud across the state and for shifting BSI’s focus to higher impact violators.
“Gina has been with us for just a short time, but she already has had a profound positive impact on our public assistance fraud work. Stronger partnerships with state agencies and district attorneys’ offices, new technologies, and more sophisticated training are but a few of her initiatives,” said Bump. “Most important though is the philosophy she brings and instills in her staff, to bring forth their talents to enhance integrity in public benefits programs and thereby build public trust.”
“I’m honored to receive the Top Women of Law Award. I am grateful to OSA for considering me worthy of this title. I am truly humbled and appreciate the recognition,” Cash said. “I would be remiss not to mention the amazing team I work with every day, I consider myself privileged to work with such dynamic and dedicated public servants. Together, we are part of Team Commonwealth, working towards maintaining the public safety net for those in need.”
Cash was named director of BSI in 2019. Before joining the Office of the State Auditor, she worked as assistant chief counsel for the Massachusetts Department of Unemployment Assistance, where she handled benefit appeals. She graduated from Howard University School of Law in 2008 and has a bachelor’s degree from Fitchburg State University.
Each year, Top Women of Law award honorees are selected by a panel comprised of members of the legal community and representatives of Lawyers Weekly. The judges chose to honor individuals who have made significant contributions to the legal profession while also serving as role models for young women entering the law.
