It’s Official: Mike Pace is a “Good Guy”
Mike Pace, Gentry Locke attorney and past managing partner of the firm, was lauded as a “Good guy” in an article written by Virginia Lawyers Weekly publisher Paul Fletcher.
In his “Publisher’s Notebook” article titled “Good guy: Mike Pace”, Fletcher writes:
On Jan. 25 in Williamsburg, the VBA bestowed its highest award, the Gerald L. Baliles Distinguished Service Award, to Pace for his service to the association and for his signature achievement, the Rule of Law Project. Past recipients include such luminaries as Baliles himself (who presented the award), Supreme Court Justice Lewis F. Powell Jr.; 4th Circuit Judge Roger L. Gregory; and Supreme Court Justices Harry L. Carrico, Leroy R. Hassell Sr. and Elizabeth B. Lacy, among others.
Pace was typically modest when he accepted the award, saying he did so on behalf of all the people who had been involved in the project.
But his idea remains bold. The stated mission of the VLF/VBA Rule of Law Project is nothing less than “to change fundamentally the way the rule of law is taught in America’s schools.”
Thanks to Pace, they are on their way. Well done, sir, well done.
