Durham, NC (PRWEB) July 13, 2011
Attorneys James S. Farrin and Adrienne Blocker of the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin have won Ebbie Awards from the North Carolina Advocates for Justice (NCAJ) for their “service and inspired commitment to the organization.”
Attorney James S. Farrin, founder and president of the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin, won the award for the firm’s overall commitment to the organization, including its assistance in fighting state legislation that would limit victim’s rights. Through James S. Farrin’s encouragement, 100 percent of the firm’s attorneys are members of the NCAJ, many holding leadership positions. The firm as a whole is a member of the President’s Club, the highest level available to NCAJ organizational members.
“The NC Advocates for Justice gives North Carolina attorneys a forum to work together to protect the rights of those who may otherwise be helpless in the face of more powerful interests,” says James. S. Farrin. “It is truly an honor to be recognized by such an outstanding organization.”
Litigation Attorney Adrienne Blocker currently is serving her fourth year as Continuing Legal Education Chair for the NCAJ Auto Torts Section. She is also the editor and a chapter author of the first edition of Nuts & Bolts of Personal Injury Claims in North Carolina, to be published jointly by LexisNexis and the NCAJ.
In addition, Adrienne Blocker is a founding member and is on the Board of Directors of the Carolina Center for Civic Education (CCCE), which is partially funded by the NCAJ. She currently serves as co-regional coordinator for the CCCE Mock Trial Competition.
Besides the Ebbie Award, Adrienne Blocker has won five NCAJ Order of Service Awards.
“I think it is important for attorneys to contribute to, or be involved with, the NCAJ because working together makes us all stronger and better able to help those who cannot help themselves,” Adrienne Blocker says. “I find it most rewarding to know that I can work hand-in-hand with those who may otherwise be my competitors for the greater good we create by working together.”
