Greenville, S.C.  – Smith Moore Leatherwood is pleased to announce that attorney Robert S. "Trey" Ingram III has been named a recipient of The Greenville News' 30 Emerging Leaders award. The award is given to honor Greenville's young leaders for their professional and community contributions. Honorees are selected based on professional achievements, community service and educational backgrounds.

"Trey's contributions to the legal profession and adoption community, through his career and personal endeavors, are truly worthy of recognition." said Tod Hyche, partner-in-charge of the Greenville office.

In his practice, Trey represents parents of all types (natural, foster, and adoptive) , advocating for the best interests of children and the constitutional rights of parents in Family Court matters involving permanency planning for children.

Ingram received his undergraduate degree from Charleston Southern University, summa cum laude, in 2005 and his juris doctor from the University of South Carolina School of Law, cum laude, in 2008. He is also a graduate of Leadership Greenville and is a past member of the Greenville Chamber's PULSE Pacesetters program. Trey mentors through Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Upstate and is very active in service with Fostering Great Ideas' Speak Up: Voices for Foster Care Reform.
