In The Community

For the past 16 years, Georgia Trend Magazine has asked the state’s attorneys to decide who among them are the best in their field. This year, Stearns-Montgomery & Proctor’s Lance Dutton was chosen by his peers to be recognized as two of the state’s finest members of the 2018 Georgia Legal Elite.

Thanks to the generosity of some SM&P staff, the goal of collecting more than 125,000 diapers for low-income Cobb County families with infants and young children became a reality. The staff were joined by people from all over the county who recently dropped off their donations at Glover Park on the Marietta Square in support of the 10th Annual Cobb Diaper Day. The event is a part of the Cobb Children’s Fund, which devotes its energy to passionately advocating for low-income families and children in need in our community.

The annual Justice Jam fundraising event helps low-income people in the Cobb County community while also offering fun for local attorneys, who enjoy taking the stage in a friendly Karaoke & Lip Sync Battle. Members and friends of the Cobb County Bar gathered at The Brickyard on October 25 to support the Legal Aid of Cobb County and Cobb Justice Foundation’s fundraiser.

For SM&P attorney Danielle Davis, receiving the Alexis Grubbs Memorial Scholarship as a high school senior proved to be a pivotal moment in her life. “It was affirmation that following my goal to become an attorney was the right decision for me,” said Danielle. “So I was proud to sponsor a hole in this year’s 20th Annual Alexis Grubbs Memorial Golf Tournament.” The tournament, held on September 11, drew 126 players to participate at the Brookstone Country Club in Acworth. The event raises money for a scholarship, open to seniors at Marietta High School who wish to pursue any area connected to law. The tournament brought in almost $25,000 this year.
