[COLUMBIA, S.C. January 30, 2017] – Collins & Lacy, P.C. is pleased to announce Ashley Kirkham has been chosen as a 2017 South Carolina Leadership in Law Award honoree. She will receive the award on March 24, 2017 at a special dinner for all honorees, held in Charleston, SC.
South Carolina Lawyers Weekly gives the distinguished award to those members of the South Carolina legal community who have achieved success in their law practice, made contributions to society and had an impact on the legal industry.
“I’m so excited to have been included among the recipients of such an accolade,” said Kirkham. “It gives me great honor both professionally and personally to have been chosen for this esteemed award.”

Her experience with defending claims against repetitive trauma injuries, jurisdictional disputes, and fraud make her a tremendous asset to the Collins & Lacy workers’ compensation team.
Kirkham is involved in the community through serving as a committee chair for the Junior League of Columbia, and she is on the Board of Directors for Kids’ Chance of South Carolina, a non-profit organization devoted to providing higher education scholarships and support to dependents of South Carolina workers who have been fatally or catastrophically injured in a work-related accident.
