Celebrating a Legal Elite

Congratulations are in order for attorney Amos Workman, a 1974 graduate of Washington and Lee, who was honored with the prestigious Tommy Thomason Award by the Greenville (South Carolina) County Bar Association. Established in 1993, the award recognizes the Greenville lawyer who best exemplifies compassion, unshakeable integrity, strong personal values, dedication to the community, humility and diplomacy. The association’s highest honor, the award celebrates those who are admired by peers, dedicated to improving the legal system, and committed to resolving disputes in a way that minimizes conflict.

“Amos’s career demonstrates how a genuine concern for others can make a meaningful impact on the legal profession. He embodies all of the characteristics that the Tommy Thomason award represents, and it is truly an honor to recognize the impact Amos has had on our community,” said Courtney C. Atkinson, president of the Greenville County Bar Association. In 2013, Amos was named a Legal Elite by Greenville Business Magazine.

In his practice at Wythe, in Greenville, Amos mediates cases in the family and circuit courts. In addition, he navigates matters in family court and handles commercial real estate transactions. An ordained minister, he serves as a member of the Foothill Presbytery Unity and Community Team and its Theological Examinations Commission. He is past president and board member emeritus of the Upstate Mediation Center and past chair of the United Way Campaign Clergy Division, and serves on the Samaritan House board.
