Four Poyner Spruill Attorneys Recognized for Pro Bono Efforts

Four Poyner Spruill attorneys, including two based in the Raleigh, have been inducted into the inaugural cohort of the Pro Bono Honor Society by the N.C. Supreme Court.

Andrew Erteschik is a partner in the Raleigh office; he focuses on high-stakes business litigation, government disputes and appeals. Caroline Mackie is an associate in the Raleigh office who focuses on commercial, governmental and general litigation. J.M. Durnovich and Eugene S. Griggs, who practice in the Charlotte office, also were named to the group.

“Every attorney at Poyner Spruill gives back to the state and their communities through volunteer work, pro bono services and financial contributions,” said Managing Partner Bo Dempster. “That Gene, Caroline, J.M. and Drew were able to carve out 50-plus hours for pro bono services from their busy work schedules reflects their deep commitment to community service.”

To receive the recognition, attorneys had to provide at least 50 hours of pro bono service in 2016.
