Vandeventer Black’s attorney Dustin T. Narcisse received a Virginia State Bar Young Lawyers’ Conference (YLC) Service Award. This award is granted to attorneys that have gone above and beyond ordinary performance by devoting their time in offering guidance to high school students who are interested in pursuing a degree in law. Narcisse served as a co-chair for the YLC’s Children & the Law program and YLC’s Corporate Counsel Liaison.
“Giving back to the community is extremely important to me as an individual and as an attorney. Helping guide others in the path of law is certainly one of my many passions,” said Narcisse.
Narcisse’s role on the Young Lawyer’s Conference enabled him to participate in Hampton’s Bethel High School’s career day where he provided insight on what it takes to become a lawyer. His work with Bethel High School throughout the school year eventually led to a seat on the Advisory Board for the Academies of Hampton and him sponsoring the school’s Mock Trial Team.
“Narcisse has demonstrated exemplary work ethic, altruism, team player attitude, and leadership skills he took away from his experience being in the Marines,” said Michael L. Sterling, Managing Partner.
Narcisse was also a key player on this year’s Legal Food Frenzy, a friendly competition between law firms, law schools, and government institutions to support the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore. He spearheaded all fundraising, volunteering efforts, and donation drive consolidating Vandeventer Black as the top finisher in Virginia in the Large Firm (per capita) category.
