Paul Drey, the managing partner of Brick Gentry, P.C., was recently honored with the John F. Sanford Award during the Dinner Gala at the Iowa Medical Society’s (IMS) 165th Annual Conference. The John F. Sanford Award recognizes a layperson who has made outstanding contributions to health care on behalf of both the Iowa Medical Society and the physicians in the State of Iowa. The presenter of the award stated, “There is a reason Paul is the ‘go to’ attorney for medical groups and physicians in Iowa – he truly cares about Iowa physicians, and understands how complex our world can be.” The receipt of this award is further evidence of how Paul continues to exhibit the attributes of strong intellect, faith, and service that resulted in him being chosen as the inaugural Father Michael McCafferty Law Scholar at NDLS in 1992.

Lorelie Masters was featured on the cover of 2015 Super Lawyers of Washington, D.C., in an article titled “Masters of the Insurance Universe.” Masters, a partner at Perkins Coie, is known as an expert in the field of insurance litigation, an area that she has practiced in since the mid- 1980s. In addition to the hours devoted to her successful practice, Masters spends after hours in her role as a social activist: advocating for pay equity for women, human-trafficking laws, voting rights and other issues. This past year Masters declared her candidacy to become the first elected attorney general in the District simply because “the race … needed to include women’s voices.”
