Las Vegas – JAMS, the largest private provider of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services worldwide, is pleased to announce that Hon. Nancy L. Allf (Ret.) has been honored with the Presidential Award by the State Bar of Nevada. This award was presented during the State Bar of Nevada’s Annual Bar Conference, held from June 27 through June 28 in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Given annually, the Presidential Award honors a State Bar of Nevada member who has practiced law for 20 years or more and whose conduct, honesty and integrity represent the highest standards of the legal profession.

We congratulate Judge Allf on this recognition from the State Bar of Nevada. This honor is a testament to her decades of work supporting the Nevada legal community. Judge Allf’s commitment to justice, integrity and excellence reflects her values and approach as a legal professional and elevates the standards of the field.
