One of our favorite attorneys, L. Lin Wood of Atlanta Georgia has given a million dollars to his Alma Mater Mercer University School of Law, Dean Daisy Hurst Floyd recently announced.
The creation of the L. Lin Wood Fund for the Enhancement of Mercer Law School is a fund which will support and enhance the programs and activities of the law school. The law school’s trial courtroom will be named in honor of Wood at a ceremony at 10 a.m. Friday, Feb. 26, 2016.
Lin Wood said in a statement about the creation of the L. Lin Wood Fund:
“Mercer Law School provided me with an excellent foundation for the exercise of the privilege of engaging in the practice of law to zealously pursue justice. As a result, I have been privileged to represent many unique and worthwhile clients for more that 38 years. It is now my privilege to give back to Mercer Law Schools as an expression of my appreciation and, more importantly, to support the school in its ongoing efforts to educate and train the next generation of lawyers essential to the continued viability of our system of justice.”
Wood has represented many clients from the little known to the powerful, on both sides as the defense and for the plaintiff.
One of our favorite court wins here at Rose Speaks.com is the DaVita whistle blower Medicare fraud lawsuit. That settle in a Court issued Public Order in 2015 for a half BILLION dollars plus attorneys fees. One of the largest public settlement in Medicare fraud. Something that is dear to many of us as we get older.
We hope to have pictures soon of the Ceremony on Friday.
