Becker Legal Services Staff award is presented to attorneys, paralegals, administrators or other staff employed by a private, nonprofit agency that provides legal services to low-income and disadvantaged eligible clients. Recipients must have a demonstrated commitment to provision of zealous and skilled legal representation for low-income and disadvantaged clients. The Awards Committee may consider direct client representation, work in support of direct client representation, and other activities in the client or legal communities.
