Remembering the Honorable Matthew J. Perry

Remembering the Honorable Matthew J. Perry

GaffneyLewis remembers with affection and honor, Matthew J. Perry on the 10th anniversary of his passing.  Those of us privileged to have appeared before him recall with great affection his gentle demeanor and pleasing temperament, his empathy and fairness to all, and his profound love of the law. 

Chief United States District Judge Joseph Anderson once wrote “to say that Matthew Perry was good in the courtroom is like saying Mickey Mantle knew how to swing a bat . . . Aristotle taught that lawyers and judges should be the very personification of justice. Matthew J. Perry Jr. comes as close as any person I have known to meeting Aristotle’s ideal.”

As a lawyer, Perry led many landmark civil rights cases, including the case that resulted in the integration of Clemson.  He was appointed by President Jimmy Carter to the United States District Court in 1979 and was South Carolina’s first African American Federal Judge.  He remained active as a Judge until his death in 2011.  The Matthew J. Perry Federal Courthouse in Columbia is a fitting tribute to such a distinguished jurist, lawyer, and activist.

Lawyer for Former Summerville Town Admin. Deciding on Legal Action

The Town of Summerville hired Rebecca Vance to be the Town’s Administrator in January and extended a 3-year contract for her services. After just 16 months of Vance’s stellar performance, the Town’s Council met in a special session on Saturday, June 19 and voted to terminate Vance.

Amy Gaffney of the Employment Team at GaffneyLewis has been engaged to represent Vance in determining if there was some impermissible motive for the Town’s vote or any legal claims Vance could bring for her firing.
