The Norfolk office of McGuireWoods received the Attorney General’s Cup today for collecting the most food per capita of any law firm in the state during the first statewide “Legal Food Frenzy” in April.
Attorney General Bob McDonnell presented the Revere bowl to John Padgett, the office’s managing partner, and Shana Jones, an associate who coordinated the office’s effort, at the Southeastern Virginia Foodbank in Norfolk.
Other winners recognized at the event included Norfolk’s Vandeventer Black LLP, which won the award for the most food collected per capita by a large law firm, and Regent University law school, which topped the collection efforts of state law schools.
With 169 law firms participating, the frenzy produced 679,000 pounds of food, well above the goal of 500,000 pounds.
In presenting the award, McDonnell said, “I hope this is the start of the statewide ‘Legal Food Frenzy’ becoming a tradition in the Virginia legal community, and I look forward to next year’s event.”
