Honoring Nancy Becker
Each year the Southern Nevada Association of Women Attorneys Foundation (SNAWAF) recognizes a
local female attorney for her accomplishments and contributions to the advancement of women in the
Nevada legal community.
This year we invite you to join us to recognize and honor Nancy Becker. In addition to her career as a
practicing attorney, Nancy has been a vital member of our Nevada State Judiciary for over twenty

helped develop programs to aid individuals with drug, alcohol and mental health issues. Following
this, Nancy served as Chief Justice of the Nevada Supreme Court and Chief Judge of the Eight Judicial
District Court, where she handled thousands of cases. Nancy’s dedication to the Nevada community
can only be compared to her humility and warmth. Her determination has helped to create a
precedent for success to women attorneys throughout the state. SNAWAF is delighted to honor Nancy
for her years of service and dedication at the Sixth Annual Justice Miriam Shearing Awards Gala.
The event will be held on September 21, 2018, from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. The evening will include music,
