Perez Morris’s Charity Hyde Invited to be a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation
The honor afforded to just 1% of licensed lawyers in jurisdiction will allow Hyde to aid in propelling the legal sector towards equality and justice
Philadelphia, Pa. (January 14, 2020) – Today, Perez Morris announces that Charity Hyde, Managing Attorney of the firm’s Northeast offices, has been invited to join the Fellows of the American Bar Foundation. Although nationally known as Perez Morris, the firm operates as Perez Morris Hyde LLC throughout the Northeast.
Charity has been with the firm for two years and oversees the firm’s litigation in the Northeast region of the U.S. She has built a presence for Columbus, Ohio-based Perez Morris in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, along with her team in Connecticut, New York and Massachusetts, rooted in diversity, philanthropy and justice. Her core practice includes aviation-related litigation, premises liability, commercial transportation and motor vehicle liability, premises liability, and insurance fraud investigation. She also spent more than two decades litigating complex toxic tort claims.
To be invited to become a fellow, attorneys must be nominated by a group of peers as a result of progressive work in the legal field. Fellows contribute to the American Bar Foundation’s research at the intersection of law and the social sciences, aiding in research, programming, writing, and policy recommendations have helped move the legal profession and society as a whole toward greater equality and justice.
“I am extremely humbled to be selected as a Fellow by this incredible organization that has performed such important research to address diversity and equal justice, education and critical questions at the intersection of law and society,” said Charity Hyde. “Throughout my career, I have strived to lead by example and give back, and this opportunity allows me to focus on areas of the law and society itself that are incredibly important to me while servicing the needs of my clients.”
Only 1% of licensed lawyers in this jurisdiction are afforded the honor of being admitted. Perez Morris is proud to have a member of the team working to move the legal sector forward towards greater equality and justice, especially during a time where work in propelling racial justice is so critical.
“We are so proud of Charity and her exemplary leadership in the legal profession, as well as within our firm. I can say, after having worked alongside her, the honor is well-deserved,” said Sarah Perez, Firm Managing Partner. “We are always striving to reach new heights in our practice and in serving clients, and Charity exemplifies our firm’s values in this regard.”
