The Virginia Law Foundation will induct Gentry Locke Partner W. David Paxton as a Fellow.
According to Monica Monday, Managing Partner of Gentry Locke Rakes & Moore and a 2011 inductee, “This is a high professional honor. Fellows are Virginia lawyers of integrity and character who are outstanding in their profession and in their communities, and are some of the most respected lawyers in Virginia. David is very deserving of this honor and it is nice to know that he has been recognized for the qualities that we see every day.”
Paxton advises and represents businesses, business owners, and executives in the areas of labor & employment law and complex litigation. He coordinates the firm’s labor and employment practice, is a frequent guest speaker at national and regional employment law seminars, and has been included in “Best Lawyers in America” for Labor & Employment for the past 15 years.
Paxton is a graduate of the University of Virginia School of Law. He is also an Honor graduate of the U.S. Naval Justice School. His undergraduate Bachelor of Arts summa cum laude degree is from Hampden-Sydney College, where he was also a Baker Scholar and a member of Omicron Delta Kappa—the National Leadership Society.
The Virginia Law Foundation serves as the public service and philanthropic arm of The Virginia Bar Association. They recognize legal excellence in practitioners of the law, provide seed money to ensure court-appointed advocates are available for those unable to represent their own interests, support pro bono legal programs that provide free or low-cost legal representation to those in need, and promote public education of the law and the legal process.
Paxton and the class of new Fellows will be recognized at an induction ceremony on January 23, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. in connection with the annual Virginia Bar Association meeting in Williamsburg, Virginia.
