Davis is one of nine attorneys at the Rome-based Brinson, Askew, Berry, Seigler, Richardson and Davis, LLP to graduate from UGA’s law school.
The firm has been awarded the Dean’s Trophy from UGA. Phyllis Cooke, director of annual giving for UGA, said the 100-percent award goes to law firms with five or more UGA graduates who all donate to the law school, and Brinson, Askew and Berry is the first firm to ever reach such an achievement.
The award recognizes the firm’s 100-percent donor participation. The firm will be awarded with a special ceremony today.
“We are excited because this award recognizes the law firm, but also the school,” Davis said.
The firm will be awarded with a reception and a special trophy presented to them at their office on West First Street by law school dean Rebecca Hanner White.
“It’s a nice honor,” Davis said.
Davis said the number of attorneys from the firm who chose to support the school through annual giving puts them in the ranks of larger firms with more partners and associates. Nearly half of the firm’s 19 lawyers got their law degree from UGA.
“I think this makes a statement that we support the school,” Davis said.
The firm has also worked to mentor young lawyers, not just graduates from UGA, as a part of State Bar of Georgia requirements.
