|Carson Named One Of State's 'Unsung Legal Heroes'|
Covington, VA (Jan. 8, 2021) - Recently, the Virginia Lawyers Weekly, a prominent statewide publication, announced the Class of 2020 â€śUnsung Legal Heroesâ€ť award, and local secretary, Mrs. Kathy Lamb Carson, was on that list. Mrs. Carson is a legal assistant for the Law Office of William T. (Bill) Wilson in Covington.
Now in its fourth year, this program recognizes the Old Dominionâ€™s most talented and dedicated legal support professionals. The â€śUnsung Legal Heroesâ€ť awards honor law firm employees, other than lawyers, who have consistently gone above and beyond the call of duty, often behind the scenes.
Responding to the award, Mrs. Carson said, â€śI had no idea I was nominated and would be receiving this award. It was a complete surprise! This is clearly one of the most significant events of my career. I enjoy working at the firm and will continue to do my work to the best of my abilities. I find great satisfaction in working with the clients and I appreciate the opportunity to work with Mr. Wilson. I thank God for his faithfulness in my life and for the opportunity to be in this position.â€ť
Bill Wilson said, â€śKathy has been my legal assistant for over ten (10) years. She has stood by me through thick and thin. She is my â€śchief cook and bottle washer,â€ť as the saying goes, and can do it all. She comes in early, works late, is overworked, and underpaid. We have had a great working relationship. She knows almost everyone in the community and that is a valuable asset in my practice. We do mostly a plaintiffâ€™s personal injury practice and she does a super job working with our clients. She very much deserves the award.
Kathy and Lance have four children: Russie Gann, and husband Drew, of Richmond; Seth Lamb; Devon and husband, Billy Nicely and grandchildren, Anthony and Kaylee, and Layne and Shana Carson and grandchildren, Kason and Xander, all of Covington.
