Dec. 13, 2012 - PRLog -- Snell & Wilmer is pleased to announce that the firm, and several of its attorneys, received awards and recognition for their pro bono contributions to the Las Vegas valley by the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada. The awards were presented at the Legal Aid Center’s 2012 Pro Bono Awards Luncheon.  

For the second year in a row, Snell & Wilmer was the recipient of the Lied Award as law firm of the year for contributing the most pro bono hours of any firm in Southern Nevada for 2012, recording 1176 combined hours.  

In addition to the firm’s recognition, Cynthia L. Alexander, a partner in the Commercial Litigation Group of the Las Vegas office, received the Lied Award for the most pro bono hours of an attorney in 2012.
