LEXINGTON (May 1, 2017)—The Fayette County Bar Association has honored Matt Parsons with its 2017 Outstanding Young Lawyer Award.
FCBA presented the award May 1 during its Annual Law Day Luncheon.
The Outstanding Young Lawyer Award recognizes a member of the FCBA who has practiced in Fayette County for less than 10 years, fulfilled an attorney’s duties to the court, clients and community, and shown dedication to the justice system through community involvement.
“This is a very well deserved recognition,” said P. Douglas Barr, managing director of Stoll Keenon Ogden PLLC where Parsons has practiced since 2008. “Being named the Outstanding Young Lawyer recognizes both Matt’s abilities as a lawyer and his volunteer work with the FCBA, other bar organizations and in the community.”
As a member of SKO, Parsons focuses his practice on civil litigation, particularly in the areas of business litigation, products liability and warranty defense, insurance defense, and employee benefits litigation.
Parsons currently is past president of the FCBA Young Lawyers Section and previously served on the boards of directors of the FBCA and the Fayette County Bar Foundation. He currently is a volunteer instructor with Junior Achievement and leads fundraising efforts for God’s Pantry Food Bank and other charities.
He is a graduate of the University of Kentucky College of Law and holds a bachelor’s degree in computer information systems from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University.
