One of the goals of the Collins & Lacy Workers’ Compensation Law Blog is to introduce you to our team. So today, I want to share a little about me, and also introduce you to our next blogger, my partner, mentor and friend – Stan Lacy.
I originally planned on being an English teacher. But when it only took me three years to earn my undergraduate degree from the University of South Carolina, a friend – who at the time was clerking for Collins & Lacy – suggested I go to law school. So I did, and I have been with the firm more than 19 years now.
From the very beginning, Stan Lacy has been my mentor. It’s a relationship I’ve cherished, as my mentor is now my partner, and most importantly my friend. He joined Joel Collins to form Collins & Lacy in 1984. Thousands of South Carolina attorneys have benefited from Stan’s vast knowledge of the law of workers’ compensation over the last 29 years, as he has taught the workers’ compensation course at the University of South Carolina School of Law. In the next three blog posts, you too will benefit from his knowledge and humor. I hope you look forward to reading them as much as I do. – Ellen
