Watts selected to receive LSBA Outstanding Young Lawyer Award this summer


Jamie Hurst Watts, a partner with the Long Law Firm LLP, will receive the LSBA Outstanding Young Lawyer Award at the LSBA Annual Conference June 3, 2013, in Sandestin. Watts, a past chair of the BRBA Young Lawyers Section Council, is an outstanding young lawyer because even with an extremely active law practice, she finds time to provide service to her profession while still being dedicated to her family. As chair of the YLS, she worked closely with the 19th JDC to begin the 50 Billable Hour Club. In addition, she has served on the Holiday Star Project, Summer Sizzlin’ CLE, Thirsty Thursday and Belly Up with the Bar.
