Last week my colleague, Donna Jones and I had the privilege of heading to Hilton Head Island to attend the South Carolina Association for Justice 2016 Annual Convention, held each year at the Westin Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa.
It was a fantastic opportunity to visit with existing friends and clients and meet with some of the best trial lawyers in the Country. The convention kicked off on Thursday and included an opportunity for CLE and social activities for trial lawyers and their families.
The highlight for me was the Awards Gala Breakfast held on Saturday morning. SCAJ President, R. Alexander “Alex” Murdaugh of Peters, Murdaugh, Parker, Eltzroth and Detrick hosted the ceremony. As a native of the Carolinas, it was a particularly heart-warming experience to hear from each of the speakers and award recipients. These are truly caring men and women who are passionate about protecting the rights of consumers and ensuring the doors of justice remain open to citizens everywhere.
Thank you to SCAJ and its members for making my colleague, Donna Jones and I feel like a welcome part of your organization. You certainly lived up to the long-established reputation of the Southern Hospitality.
