Richland One General Counsel named Lawyer of DistinctionMay 18, 2023
Richland One General Counsel Susan Williams has been named a 2023 Lawyer of Distinction for Recognizing Excellence in In-House Counsel.
“I’m so honored to have received this award. In my 26 years in this position, this achievement is a testament to my work, my dedication to education and my love for law and the benefit for our children,” Williams said.
Lawyers of Distinction is a “legal fraternity of lawyers from all 50 states and abroad.” Their goal is to help members distinguish themselves in the legal landscape.
Lawyers enter the candidate pool either through the organization’s Selection Committee or through individual and self-nominations. Once a lawyer is nominated, the committee identifies lawyers who have demonstrated excellence in law practice. The organization then verifies the attorney’s licensing and searches for any prior ethics infractions or malpractice cases.
Memberships are valid one year after an application is accepted. The organization accepts all types of lawyers.
