A Charleston, South Carolina attorney was recently named by South Carolina Lawyers Weekly as one of its Leadership in Law honorees.
Elizabeth "Beth" Palmer, a partner at Rosen Hagood specializing in business and commercial litgation, employment law, personal injury and education law, will receive her award on March 16 at a ceremony in Charleston.
The South Carolina Lawyers Weekly Leadership in Law award is bestowed upon legal professionals from across South Carolina who have excelled in their practices or made significant contributions to the field of law as a whole.
“I am honored to be selected for this award,” Palmer said. “It is a humbling to be among the group of selected attorneys and to be recognized for public service.”
Active inside the courtroom and out, Palmer belongs to the SC Bar Young Lawyers Division (YLD), for which she currently serves as co-chair of the Public Service Committee. She is also a member of the American Bar Association’s YLD (ABA YLD).
One of her major achievements was co-coordinating, from development through implementation, the national Bullyproof program, aimed at educating children, parents and educators about the dangers and consequences of bullying.
She also created and implemented Project Street Youth: Young Lawyers Advocating for Street Youth, a national program that provides legal services for homeless and transitional youth.
“Beth’s commitment to the profession and advancing programs that benefit the community is evident by her involvement in state, local and national organizations,” Rosen Hagood partner Alice Paylor said. “She maintains a successful law practice while volunteering uncountable hours of service to the legal profession, her community and to our nation.”
