Attorney Melissa Fried, a personal injury attorney at the Joye Law Firm, was recently named to the 2014 Board of Directors for Florence Crittenton Programs of South Carolina.

The Florence Crittenton organization has been serving the state of South Carolina for over 116 years and is widely known for providing education, counseling, medical care, housing and social support to young pregnant and parenting mothers in need.

“We are extremely proud of Melissa for being named to the Florence Crittenton Board,” explained Ken Harrell, managing partner of the Joye Law Firm. “I don’t think they could have picked a more dedicated, passionate and responsible individual. Melissa will serve the organization well.”

Fried earned her Bachelor of Arts in English and Government from Wofford College in Spartanburg, SC, where she graduated magna cum laude. She went on to earn her Juris Doctorate from the Charleston School of Law, where she served as the Senior Articles Editor of the Charleston Law Review, was the Chair of the Honor Council, and received the Michelle Robbins Memorial Award for excellence in public service and academics. Prior to joining Joye Law Firm’s Personal Injury Department, Fried was a judicial law clerk for the Honorable Daniel F. Pieper of the South Carolina Court of Appeals. She has also served as an adjunct professor at Charleston School of Law.

Attorney Fried was a natural pick for the Crittenton board because of her dedication to public service, influential position in the local community and organizational skills and abilities.

Fried’s first project with the organization is the annual Oyster Roast & Chili Cook-off scheduled for Sunday, February 23rd from 2-5pm at Goldbug Island in Mt. Pleasant, SC. As a show of support to Melissa and the Florence Crittenton organization, Joye Law Firm’s “Joye in the Community” program will be one of the event’s headlining sponsors.
