During the annual Law Day Celebration on Tuesday, May 1st in Spartanburg, South Carolina, the Spartanburg County Bar Association honored a private attorney who is well-known and three courthouse workers.

The Justice C. Bruce Littlejohn Young Lawyer of the Year Award was given to Prina Tailor, who was graduated from the School of Law at the University of South Carolina and the Darla Moore School of Business at USC. She is currently working in the solicitor’s office and has been cited by Solicitor Barry Barnette as someone who is willing to work on difficult cases and volunteers for the Cinderella Project sponsored by the Bar Association. The Spartanburg County Bar Association no doubt used poster printing and flyer printing to announce the honorees and their respective awards.

The Justice E.C. Burnett II Contribution to Law and Justice Award was given to Deborah Greene and Patricia Gotautos. Gotautos is the non-jury docket coordinator for the civil docket and Greene is the coordinator of the jury civil docket. Greene and Gotautas were credited by Attorney Kenneth C. Anthony with their ability to communicate effectively with members of the legal community and for the work which is very detail-oriented.

The Justice Claude Taylor Distinguished Service Award was given to James B. Drennan III. He has spent a great deal of his career in probate work and in estate planning.

Several students in grades nine through 12 in Spartanburg and Cherokee counties also received medals and certificates for an essay contest sponsored by the bar.
