Greensboro, N.C. — Smith Moore Leatherwood is pleased to announce that Larry B. Sitton was honored today by the North Carolina Bar Association (NCBA) Foundation with a named endowment. The Larry B. Sitton Justice Fund will enable the Foundation to fund programs and activities that better serve the public and the legal profession.
Justice Funds honor North Carolina lawyers whose careers have shown dedication to the pursuit of justice and outstanding service to the profession and the public. Those honored with a named endowment receive special recognition in the form of a permanent copper-etched plaque and biographic sketch housed at the North Carolina Bar Center.
Sitton, a partner in Smith Moore Leatherwood's Greensboro office, served as president of the NCBA from 1998-1999. He also led the initiative for the NCBA's incorporation of BarCARES in 2000 and served as its founding president. Sitton served on the NCBA Board of Governors from 1987-1990, leading numerous committees and task forces during his tenure.
"I am truly honored that the North Carolina Bar Association Foundation has associated my name with the opportunity to contribute to programs and activities that that will better serve the state of North Carolina and our legal system," said Sitton.
Sitton has practiced litigation at Smith Moore Leatherwood since 1967. He is licensed to appear before the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, and the U.S. District Courts of the Western, Eastern and Middle Districts of North Carolina.
