Smith Moore Leatherwood Names 2015 Pro Bono Lawyers Of The Year


November 10, 2015

Charleston, S.C. – G.P. Diminich and Laura Evans, attorneys in Smith Moore Leatherwood's Charleston office, recently received the firm's 2015 McNeill Smith Pro Bono Lawyers of the Year Award for their ongoing pro bono work with the families involved in the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church tragedy. Diminich and Evans partnered with the Charleston County Bar Association to provide legal assistance to the survivors and victims' families. 

The McNeill Smith Pro Bono Lawyer of the Year Award was created, as part of the firm's ongoing pro bono program, to recognize attorneys who have shown an outstanding commitment to pro bono service. The award honors the values and history of public service championed by John McNeill Smith Jr., who practiced law for more than 50 years with the firm. Smith earned respect among the legal community for his courageous actions defending the rights of others. The firm's McNeill Smith award recognizes other attorneys whose actions reflect these same values.

"G.P. and Laura have invested tirelessly in the Charleston community, particularly the families involved in the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church tragedy, in a powerful way and have volunteered countless hours of assistance to those who are most in need," said Tami McKnew, Pro Bono Committee Chair.
