Clay and Levinson Honored at NCBA Annual Meeting

July 2015

Two Charlotte Moore & Van Allen attorneys were formally recognized at the North Carolina Bar Association’s 2015 Annual Meeting, which was held in June.  Corporate Member Hal Levinson was presented with a 2015 Citizen Lawyer Award during the General Session on June 19, and Litigation Associate Cabell Clay was recognized for her two-year term as the North Carolina Bar Association Young Lawyers Division’s District 9 Representative to the American Bar Association.

The Citizen Lawyer Award recognizes lawyers who exemplify the ideals of a citizen lawyer: public service in appointed and elected positions, work with non-profit charitable and political organizations, military service and volunteering with youth sports programs and with religious organizations.  Levinson’s commitments are so expansive that it would be exhaustive to attempt to list each and every organization where he has volunteered his time.  Perhaps his most visible impact in Charlotte can be seen on the campus of Shalom Park, which is now home to 225,000 square feet of indoor facilities together with a day camp and outdoor athletic fields.  Levinson spent seven years serving as president of the Foundation of Shalom Park, during which time he chaired the campaign committee that raised approximately $40 million for new construction and endowment.  Under Levinson’s leadership, the goal to expand Shalom Park became a reality, and now these new facilities and programs are available for the entire Charlotte community to enjoy.  Levinson continues to serve as a role model within the legal profession and the community as a whole, and truly exemplifies the qualities of a “Citizen Lawyer.”       

Clay was appointed to serve as the North Carolina Bar Association Young Lawyers Division’s District 9 Representative to the American Bar Association in 2014 for a two-year term.  As the District 9 Representative, Clay’s primary role is to serve as a liaison between the North Carolina Bar Association/local bar associations and the American Bar Association (ABA) Young Lawyers Division (YLD).  In conjunction, Clay will serve as the voice of her affiliates as a member of the YLD Executive Council and Executive Committee.  District representatives also handle Disaster Legal Services under the ABA YLD’s contract with the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Congratulations to both on these deserved recognitions!
