The Neal Award for Outstanding Advocacy, established in 2012 in partnership withU.S. Senator Paul Strauss (DC), is named after former long-serving LSIC supervising attorney Nathan A. Neal. The award recognizes a civil division student attorney for exemplary work in representing underserved clients and in developing professional relationships with clients, colleagues, and members of the bench and bar. Marcelo Perez (’16, AU Law) is the recipient of this year’s award.

“From the start, Marcelo was willing to take on some of our most difficult cases,” stated Supervising Attorney Gabriella Lewis-White. “He showed a genuine concern for the well-being of his clients and over time proved himself to be one of our strongest oral advocates.”
