BERRY LAW NAMED TO MILITARY TIMES ‘BEST FOR VETS’ LIST OF EMPLOYERS
Nov 14, 2023
Lincoln, Nebraska – Berry Law, the prestigious firm renowned for not only representing veterans but also hiring them, has been named to the Military Times’ “Best for Vets” list of the best workplaces for veterans in America.
I am honored to be named a Best for Vets employer. We are always aiming to hire, retain, promote, and support veterans at Berry Law; the leadership skills they bring to the team are essential to our success and to our culture. We do what it takes to make sure they are supported.
Over the past 75 years, Military Times has provided coverage by and for veterans regarding a broad range of issues from military history to benefits, healthcare and Tricare, transition assistance and more. The publication’s reporting has earned it a variety of journalistic accolades, including the Gerald Ford Foundation Prize for National Security Reporting and the American Legion’s Fourth Estate Award. The “Best for Vets” lists are a cornerstone of the publication’s yearly reporting and serve as a guide in the coming year for veterans seeking education and employment.
Since its inception, Berry Law has made serving military veterans and their families one of the cornerstones of the practice. Over 20% of the legal team at Berry Law served in the military personally, and almost 100% of staff members have at least one immediate family member who served or is serving. Coming from a military family himself, John Berry is a US Army veteran who was deployed to Bosnia for Operation Joint Forge as a platoon leader. He later served as a Company Commander in Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom.
In addition to being named to the Best of Vets list, Berry Law’s efforts to provide service and employment to veterans has earned the firm numerous other accolades. In November of this year, the firm was the recipient of the prestigious 2023 HIRE Vets Medallion Award, the only federal program that recognizes employers who successfully recruit, hire, and retain veterans. Berry Law has additionally received praise from Camp Cowboy, an organization that aids veterans with PTSD by training them to become cowboys and helping them build bonds with both animals and other veterans.
What excites me about being acknowledged as a Best for Vets employer is the anticipation of attracting a larger pool of veteran applicants in the coming year.
John launched a new podcast, Veteran Led, in October of this year. He shares stories about the military lessons he learned that helped him grow a successful business, and why having team members with the same work ethic and value system has been essential to this success. Starting this Veteran’s Day weekend, he will release a special edition interview episode with Senator Tom Brewer, with more interviews featuring prominent veteran leaders to follow this December. The podcast can be found on all major listening platforms as well as YouTube.
