Lim Ruger partner Samuel S. Oh was posthumously honored by Neighborhood Legal Services of LA County (“NLS”) at its eighth annual “Just Neighbors” gala on Saturday, October 19, 2013 at the Autry Museum in Griffith Park. NLS gave Sam the Legal Excellence Award, recognizing his dedication and service to NLS and the impoverished communities of Los Angeles.
Sam’s family – wife Helen, daughter Lisa, and son Andrew – received the award in his stead in a lovely ceremony, surrounded by Sam’s parents, brother, sister-in-law, nieces, nephews and other family in a celebration of Sam’s career. Many of his colleagues at Lim Ruger also attended the gala. Sam’s eldest daughter, Sarah, is a student at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire and could not attend the ceremony.
Sam began volunteering at NLS early in his career and served on NLS’s board from 1998 on. Sam spent countless hours serving those in need through pro bono counseling, seminars and clinics on bankruptcy and real estate disputes. His presence is missed at NLS, as he is missed at Lim Ruger.
