LINCOLN, NEBRASKA, – The Department of Labor has awarded Berry Law a Platinum Medallion through its HIRE Vets Program focused on recognizing companies that hire Veterans. This is the second consecutive year that Berry Law has received the honor and is a testament to the tremendous effort by Berry Law to employ Veterans in their mission, which includes providing legal services to Veterans nationwide.
The HIRE Vets Medallion Program is the only federal award recognizing businesses that excel at hiring and retaining veterans. The Department of Labor presents both gold and platinum medallions, with platinum recognized as the more exclusive tier. To be considered for this award, the nominated business must have veteran integrated assistance programs and have at least 10% of new hires who are veterans. Berry Law more than surpasses the requirements to receive this honorable award.
“By meeting the criteria required for a Platinum Medallion Award, Berry Law Firm demonstrated both patriotism and recognition of the value veterans bring to the workplace,” said John Lowry, Assistant Secretary for the U.S. Department of Labor, in a statement.
John Berry, the firm’s CEO said it was an honor to receive the award and that “Veterans are our country’s greatest natural resource. We reach out to hire Veterans not just to honor their service, but because they are generally great at providing an immediate positive impact to the team. The same skills and values that allowed them to succeed in the military can directly translate into civilian success.”
Berry Law continued to aggressively hire Veterans through the COVID crisis and plans to continue hiring Veterans to join the team. Veterans are central to Berry Law, and the team features Veterans from each of the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps. Five of the seven executives at the firm are Veterans.
Berry Law is always looking for veterans to help advance the mission of protecting individual rights, including legal practices for personal injury, criminal defense, and Veterans law. Please visit berrylawfirm.com to learn more about the firm, its mission, and current job openings.
