Hands together, team work

Brooks Pierce recently recognized 18 of the firm’s attorneys for contributing 50 hours or more of pro bono work to various organizations in 2019. Bill Cary received the firm’s 2019 Pro Bono Award for his work with several organizations.

Cary provided pro bono work for The Longleaf Alliance, the Greensboro Arts Center and the North Carolina Coastal Federation. His work with the North Carolina Coastal Federation was recognized earlier this year when he was awarded the 2019 Pelican Award for “Leadership and Commitment to Advancing Effective Coastal Policy.”

Cary has been involved with the North Carolina Coastal Federation since 2015 when he presented at the national conference on the impediments to living shorelines. In 2017 and 2018, he was a member of the Shellfish Mariculture Advisory Committee, which developed the state’s first Strategic Shellfish Mariculture Plan. The plan was passed into law receiving support from both sides of the aisle by the North Carolina General Assembly in 2017.
