Another major attraction of our practice is the opportunity for direct and immediate involvement in community affairs. Virtually every member of the firm takes part in a significant way in helping to shape the community in which we live. Various members of the firm are actively involved in politics (with varying views), in local civic affairs (one has served as president of the United Way, one has served as chairman of the local housing authority, one has served as chair of the Greenville Area Development Corporation and several are active in the local chapter of the Urban League), and in the arts (four have served as president of the Greenville Symphony, others have served as presidents or directors of other local arts organizations, and two led a hugely ambitious and equally successful campaign to raise money for the award-winning Peace Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Greenville).
In addition, many members of the firm are actively involved in conservation activities, which have resulted in the establishment of parks, nature preserves, and conservation easements over large expanses of nearby mountain lands. The list could go on. The important point is that our commitment to the community embraces everyone, from associates to senior members.
