Hutchens Law Firm Attorney Receives Top Honor

(November 25, 2014) — The North Carolina Lawyer Assistance Program (LAP) has named Hutchens Law Firm associate
attorney Lanee Borsman its 2014 Chief Justice Service Award winner. The Lawyer Assistance Program is a service of the North Carolina State
Bar that provides confidential assistance to North Carolina lawyers to help them identify and address problems with alcoholism, other drug addictions and
mental health disorders. The program uses a number of lawyer volunteers who have personal experience or training in addiction and/or mental health issues
and are trained in confidentiality and peer assistance.

Borsman, who has been an active volunteer with the LAP for a year and a half, received this year's award because of an unusually high level of
volunteerism. According to the LAP, she "has volunteered in practically every capacity available. Despite a busy work schedule, (Borsman) is always willing
to speak … tell a personal story … participated in LAP interventions, visited lawyers needing support, served as a liaison to meetings, mentored and
monitored clients under a LAP recovery contract, and provided testimonial for a new website. In many ways, she served as adjunct LAP staff this year."
Borsman serves on the LAP Board of Directors and also on its Foundation Board.
