T. Wayne Williams of Williams DeLoatche, P.C. has been inducted into the Fellowship of the Litigation Counsel of America.
The Litigation Counsel of America is an invitation-only trial lawyer honorary society established to reflect the new face of the American bar. Membership is limited to 3,500 Fellows, representing less than one-half of one percent of American lawyers. The composition of the LCA is aggressively diverse, with recognition of excellence among American litigation and trial counsel across all segments of the bar. The purpose of the LCA is to recognize deserving, experienced, and highly qualified lawyers, to provide an outlet for scholarly authorship of legal articles on trial and litigation practice, to provide additional sources for professional development, to promote superior advocacy and ethical standards in the practice of law, to assist in community involvement by its membership, and to advance a superior judiciary, by taking relevant positions on issues or legislation affecting judicial compensation and/or benefits, as well as those affecting the American litigation processes.
In addition to Wayne's professional achievements, he is active in the community with the Sertoma Club of Norfolk, which raises money for individuals with speech and hearing problems and other worthwhile causes throughout Hampton Roads. He is a past President of the Sertoma Club. Wayne has also done fund raising for the American Lung Association in memory of his father to support his cause of asthma research. Wayne also serves on the Towne Bank Leadership Alliance Board and boards for several other local businesses. He is also a member of the Eastern Shore Chamber of Commerce and the Onancock Rotary Club. For his business success and community involvement, he was honored as one of the top 40 professionals under 40 in the Hampton Roads area by Inside Business in 2010.
