Marks & Harrison is proud to announce that it will be honored as the Outstanding Law Firm and Business of the Year by the Legal Information Network for Cancer at the LINC spring award luncheon in May.
LINC is a nonprofit organization which serves the Greater Richmond area by providing cancer patients with education and assistance, including referral to legal, financial and community resources. Cancer is the second leading cause of death among adults in Virginia, LINC says, but the non-medical effects of cancer are what often create crisis situations for individuals and families. Marks & Harrison and other LINC partners provide services to cancer patients, survivors and their family members.
Every year LINC hosts a luncheon to honor dedicated volunteers and businesses which have made LINC’s services to cancer patients possible.
Others to receive awards are:
- Jack Cullather – Ronne Jacobs Leadership Award
- Robert L. Flax – Krista Latshaw Volunteer Attorney
- Kristen Marie Johnson – Allison Held Volunteer of the Year.
“We are honored to be singled out as a law firm which has provided significant assistance to LINC and its clients,” said Marks & Harrison attorney Joanna L. Suyes. “The Richmond area and its citizens are fortunate to have an organization of the caliber of LINC. Marks & Harrison is better for its association with LINC.”
Marks & Harrison is a personal injury, workers’ compensation, and Social Security disability law firm. It was founded in 1911 and today is one of the largest personal injury law firms in the state with offices in Richmond, Harrisonburg, Hopewell, Petersburg, Charlottesville, Tappahannock, Louisa, Fredericksburg and Staunton.
The LINC Spring Awards Luncheon is to be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Friday, May 15, at the Virginia Historical Society in Richmond. Tickets are $65, with additional opportunities to sponsor a 10-seat table ($600) and publish your name as an advocate or to honor a cancer patient in the luncheon program for $100 (by May 7).
