Nelson Zakia Accepts Charles H. Dougherty Civility Award

June 8, 2017

We want to proudly extend our congratulations to our own Nelson Zakia who is this year’s recipient of the Charles H. Dougherty Civility Award. A number of us at HoganWillig were fortunate enough to join Nelson the evening of June 6 at Kleinhans Music Hall to watch him accept the award by the Bar Association of Erie County. The award, named after a past Erie County Bar President, is presented to distinguished practitioners who exhibit a sense of civility and decorum and who work to elevate the standard of integrity, honor, and courtesy in the legal profession. Always a gentleman, Nelson has instilled his colleagues with a sense of decency and respect in a profession that sorely needs the benefit of examples like his. We heartily congratulate Nelson on his well-deserved honor.
