WSBA’s Professionalism Committee wishes to congratulate Robert Smith, a recipient of the Committee’s Professionalism in Practice Award! Robert is a partner at Advocates Law Group, where he counsels behavioral healthcare providers and agencies on compliance with HIPAA regulations and other areas of regulation.
Robert “has served as a mentor to many young attorneys. He is generous with his time and gives invaluable advice,” says Erin M. Fairley, who nominated Robert for the award. She adds, “Bob exemplifies professionalism in practice because he treats colleagues, adversaries, and clients with equal respect. Bob is the consummate gentleman in all situations and, as such, professionalism is not a trait he needs to work on but a trait that Bob models on a daily basis.”
The Professionalism in Practice Award was developed by the Professionalism Committee and is a way for anyone to honor those in the legal profession who have conducted themselves in a highly professional manner consistent with the spirit of the Creed of Professionalism.
