Leading North Carolina law firm Brooks Pierce was presented with the “Living United Award” at the United Way of Greater Greensboro’s annual meeting on June 13. The award is given to an organization whose campaign embodies the motto “giving, advocating and volunteering.” The award was accepted on the firm’s behalf by April Prevette, human resource generalist, Sharon O’Brien, paralegal, and Clint Morse, partner.
