San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 12, 2017 -- Seth Neulight, a partner in the San Francisco Office of Nixon Peabody LLP, will receive the Bill Brockett Pro Bono Award from Swords to Plowshares on September 14, 2017, for his outstanding work with veterans.
Swords to Plowshares, a San Francisco-based veteran service organization, will present the award at a legal reception held at the law firm of Keker, Van Nest & Peters LLP. The annual award is given to a volunteer attorney for their outstanding service to veterans and dedication to Swords to Plowshares’ Veterans Pro Bono Program. The award is named in memory of William “Bill” Brockett Jr. who co-founded Keker, Van Nest & Peters LLP along with John Keker.
“Swords to Plowshares does incredible work every day to support our nation’s veterans,” Neulight said. “They have developed a terrific pro bono program that delivers desperately needed legal services to veterans, and I’m thankful to work with a law firm that supports the community.”
Seth Neulight has served as an active and dedicated member on Swords to Plowshares' Pro Bono Advisory Board since 2015. He has provided excellent pro bono representation to multiple veteran clients on VA service-connection, discharge upgrade, and pension matters, and has rallied many of the attorneys in his firm to do the same. Seth has also provided invaluable legal advice and counsel to Swords to Plowshares on an organization-wide level.
“We honor Seth for being a champion of pro bono services at Nixon Peabody,” said Barbara Saavedra, Interim Legal Director of Swords to Plowshares. “I'm sure that no one feels the importance of Seth's dedication more than his own pro bono clients, for whom he has achieved significant, life-changing results.”
