Brad Thayer Receives Rising Star Award from Local Bar Association

Posted by Scott Edwards | Mar 08, 2018 | 0 Comments

The firm is proud to announce that on Saturday March 3, 2018, attorney Brad Thayer of Schauermann Thayer was awarded the RISING STAR AWARD by his peers in the Clark County Bar Association (“CCBA”) at its annual “Barrister's Ball”. 

The Honorable Clark County District Court Judge Chad Sleight, who introduced two of the award recipients over the course of the evening, mentioned among other things:

  • Brad's past service to the local Clark County Bar Association (including as the past president of its Young Lawyers Division);
  • The fact that he donates time to give advice at Clark County Volunteer Lawyer Program clinics and events; and,
  • The fact that the partners in the firm Brad works for are so impressed with his work ethic, the quality of his work, and consistent client satisfaction, that they have decided to offer him a partnership with the firm. 

In his comments about this recognition which followed Judge Sleight's eloquent introduction, Brad said:

It's truly an honor to be selected to receive this award, not only knowing who has received this award in the past and what they've accomplished, but also knowing how many awesome young attorneys there are practicing in Clark County right now.  I think that's a really exciting thing for our local bar association.

I would like to thank my wife and my parents who are all here tonight.  I would also like to thank the CCBA and the CCBA board for presenting me this award.  I also want to thank all of you, the CCBA membership.

I consider myself fortunate to practice law among and with all of you attorneys in this local bar association.  The caliber of people you are, personally and professionally, is inspiring to a young attorney like me.  From the beginning, when I began practicing here in Clark County roughly two years ago, you've always been welcoming and accommodating of me and I really appreciate that.

That experience, in connection with the different opportunities that were available to me as a young attorney seemingly from the start, like—the Young Lawyer Section; and, Inns of Court, which allows young attorneys to get to know and spend time with the local judges; and, the Volunteer Lawyer Program, more recently—really do make Clark County a special place to practice law.  All of these things make Clark County unique, too, I think.

So, please know that I appreciate all of you, I appreciate this award, and thanks again.
