Carpenter Achievement Award for Excellence – to Wade Bosley, longtime veterans’ disability attorney, pro bono advocate, and partner of the law firm Bosley & Bratch. He accepted the award at NOVA’s spring training conference in San Francisco this month.

Dedicated to upholding the legal rights of military veterans and providing specialized training for those who represent them, NOVA created this award to honor its Founding Member Ken Carpenter and his immense contributions to the field of veterans’ law. First presented in 2002, the award is given to a NOVA member each spring to mark exemplary achievement in the spirit of the organization’s founders.

He also pioneered the use of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as an element of damage and disability in personal injury cases and received the PTSD Vets, Inc. Service Award for his efforts in 2008.

A passionate volunteer, Mr. Bosley was named “2012 Pro Bono Advocate of the Year” by the Center for Veterans Advancement and NOVA for providing free services to homeless and underprivileged veterans and encouraging others to do the same. He also served NOVA as a two-term past president and board member.
