Imagine my surprise as Nevada Justice Association's outgoing president invited me to the podium to accept the Badger Award on behalf of the NJA at the organization's annual conference, held this year in San Diego, California. The annual award is given to the NJA member who has gone above and beyond the call of duty, who has worked to promote the cause of the association, to further its goals and ideals, and for distinguished service to the people of Nevada.

I had received this award once before and I am told I am only one of two trial attorneys to be so acknowledged. I am proud to be a member of such a distinguished organization and prouder yet to be acknowledged by my peers.
Before I even returned home from the annual convention, I was notified that I had also been named as one of Nevada's Top Attorneys by KNPR's Desert Companion. Listed in the area of Social Security Disability, I joined the list of Southern Nevada's most recommended lawyers put together by LexisNexis Martindale-Hubbell, whose standard for peer review ratings includes only attorneys who have reached the highest levels of ethical standards and professional excellence in their field.
Attorneys on the list have received AV Preeminent ratings by their peers, which is the highest Peer Review Rating available.

It is humbling to receive two peer group recognitions this month. I thank my clients and colleagues for their trust in the abilities of our firm to bring the best possible solutions to the Social Security Disability issues that they deal with every day and I acknowledge my staff for the help, dedication and the professional manner in which they continue to serve our clients.
