"Most of us can thank great mentors for the successes we have enjoyed in our professional career. So it is with deep appreciation for those who patiently taught and willingly shared their "know how" with us that we pass on this knowledge and know-how to the next generation of Poyner Spruill lawyers. In the end, the legacy of this mentoring process is not only a firm of well-trained lawyers, but clients who are better and more efficiently served."
