Two members of the law firm of McAfee & Taft were honored at the Central Oklahoma Association of Legal Assistants’ June meeting and awards luncheon at the Beacon Club in downtown Oklahoma City.

Trial lawyer Andrew J. Morris was honored as the “2017 Attorney of the Year” for his demonstrated legal excellence and support of the legal assistant profession.

“Working with an attorney like Andrew is an opportunity that I hope every paralegal can experience in their career,” said Bre Little in her nomination of Morris. “His level of attention to detail, knowledge, and passion for the law make him a great attorney, but his patience and willingness to teach those around him make him an even better supervisor.”

Andrew is a 2013 honors graduate from the University of Oklahoma College of Law and a 2016 graduate of the American Board of Trial Advocates’ National Trial Academy. His achievements as a lawyer have also earned him inclusion in Oklahoma Super Lawyers’ list of “Oklahoma Rising Stars,” which recognizes the state’s up-and-coming attorneys.

COALA also honored litigation paralegal Bre Little with the Dianna Peters Memorial Scholarship. The honor, which is named in memory of one of McAfee & Taft’s longest-serving litigation paralegals, is given to a COALA member who has excelled academically in the paralegal studies program at either the University of Oklahoma or Rose State College and is pursuing a certified paralegal designation from NALA, the nation’s leading professional association for paralegals.

Bre graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor’s degree from Southern Nazarene University in 2008 and most recently earned her paralegal certificate from the University of Oklahoma College of Law in May 2017.
