A privilege to serve a client like this…

With her permission, I want to tell you about Lara Mingus.  Lara is a wonderful woman who suffered an unspeakably sad tragedy a little more than two years ago in rural Union County.  She witnessed her 7-year old son, Jonathan, being struck by a van while he attempted to cross the road to get to his waiting school bus.  I am not going to say anything about the how incident occurred because it is currently in litigation.

This much I will say — cases like this — and clients like Lara — are the reason I went to law school.

This good person is taking her devastating loss and trying to make something worthwhile come out of it.  This past weekend, she helped the Donate 2 Life organization that helps save 3the lives of persons desperately needing and seeking healthy organs to stay alive.

They held a bike ride in Davidson, and raised awareness of the need for the services this organization provides, and thousands of dollars to help in the effort.  Take a few minutes to look at the news reports, and learn about the families that are being helped in this effort.

Mike is a lifelong Episcopalian, and often jokes that means "I am a raging agnostic at least two or three days a week.” In 2019, he was appointed by the Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina as a licensed Lay Preacher in the Episcopal Church.
