COLUMBIA, SC – The University of South Carolina School of Law will honor A. Mattison “Matt” Bogan, a partner in Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP's Columbia office, with a Compleat Lawyer award in April. He is receiving the award in the Silver category for 15 or fewer years of service to the profession and community.
“Matt is truly deserving of this award, and we congratulate our colleague on this accomplishment,” said Managing Partner Jim Lehman. “Matt is a capable and talented lawyer, values service and giving back to his community and the profession, and is a model for our profession.”
Bogan focuses on civil litigation and appeals, primarily in financial services matters. In just 10 years of private practice, he has argued almost 40 cases before the S.C. Supreme Court and Court of Appeals. Since 2011, Bogan has volunteered more than 150 hours per year to the S.C. Commission on Indigent Defense’s Office of Appellate Defense. He has participated as a mentor for first-year law students for the past six years as part of the law school’s Introduction to the Profession course.
A former president of the John Belton O’Neall Inn of Court, he is currently on the Board of the S.C. Chapter of the Federal Bar Association. He chaired the Paralegal Task Force working with Justice John W. Kittredge and the Commission on the Profession in examining paralegal certification. He is also on the Bar’s Judicial Qualifications Committee. He is a former clerk to the Honorable Jean H. Toal, former Chief Justice of the S.C. Supreme Court, and to the Honorable Richard M. Gergel of the U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina.
The Compleat Lawyer Awards were established in 1992 by the University of South Carolina Law School Alumni Council to recognize alumni for outstanding civic and professional accomplishments. Each year the council recognizes up to nine outstanding alumni. Nominees are individuals who have made significant contributions to the legal profession and exemplify the highest standard of professional competence, ethics, and integrity, according to the university.
