Turner Padget announces that Columbia-based associate Marshall T. Minton has been named as Star of the Quarter by the South Carolina Bar for her work with the Cinderella Project. Minton served as vice-chair of the Columbia boutique, a project of the South Carolina Bar Young Lawyers Division that helps underprivileged high school girls in need of prom dresses. The Star of the Quarter recognizes bar members who exemplify dedication to public service.
The Cinderella Project, sponsored by the South Carolina Bar Young Lawyers Division, provides underprivileged girls in South Carolina the opportunity to become “princesses” on prom night. Attorney-members collect gently used formal gowns, handbags and accessories for girls who are financially unable to purchase these items for the prom. During the months of February through April, six “boutiques” are set up across the state to help girls choose from hundreds of dresses and accessories without a charge.
At Turner Padget, Minton focuses her practice on estate planning, probate administration and probate litigation. She is an active member of the Junior League of Columbia, the South Carolina Women Lawyers Association, the South Carolina Young Lawyers Division and Trenholm Road United Methodist Church.
