Wake Forest University School of Law Professor Steve Virgil was recently recognized as the Mortgage Foreclosure Attorney of the Year by Legal Aid of North Carolina.
Virgil, who is the director of the law school’s Community Law and Business Clinic, supervised 24 law students who handled mortgage foreclosure cases in 2010 for LANC.
Virgil and the students were recognized at the fourth annual pro bono celebration held by LNAC’s Winston-Salem office at the Hawthorne Inn in April.
The event recognized and celebrated the pro bono efforts of its local attorneys last year. Awards were presented to the volunteer attorneys who did outstanding work for LANC clients in 2010.
“This is wonderful recognition from Legal Aid of the pro bono efforts of Professor Virgil and our students,” said Suzanne Reynolds, Executive Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.
Also recognized as Housing/Consumer Attorney of the Year was Mark D. Boynton (’97) of Kilpatrick Townsend and Stockton.
