Texas Bar Journal – 2011 J. Chrys Dougherty Award

Austin attorney Nelson Mock is an overachiever. He didn’t just earn a few scouting badges; he became an Eagle Scout. He didn’t just receive his J.D. from the University of Texas at Austin; he received a public policy degree as well. And he didn’t just pass the bar; he passed the bar three weeks after the birth of his daughter.

Mock, who has brought this diligent approach to his public interest work, has been awarded the 2011 J. Chrys Dougherty Award for Legal Services, an accolade that recognizes an outstanding legal services staff attorney. The award comes with a $1,500 stipend from the Texas Bar Foundation and the Texas Access to Justice Commission.
