ABL Attorney, Chelsea Rikard, Recognized by Spartanburg County Bar Association
ABL’s own, Chelsea Rikard, was recognized for her commitment and service to other lawyers and citizens of Spartanburg County. In June 2020, the Spartanburg County Bar Association, which is the governing body for Spartanburg County lawyers, awarded Chelsea with the C. Bruce Littlejohn Award, for Young Lawyer of the Year. At the ceremony, the award presented, Attorney Charles Edwards, highlighted the multitude of ways that Chelsea commits her time to community service, including coaching high school students to compete in Mock Trial, arranging wills clinic for Veterans and First Responders, serving as a representative for the Young Lawyers of Spartanburg and Cherokee Counties, and engaging with students who are interested in pursuing a career in law. Chelsea and all of the legal team at ABL consider community service a core mission of the Firm and they will continue to find ways to engage and give back.
