Welcoming Brittany B. Falabella, litigation practice group Director, Cam Beck says, "We are excited to have Britt join our team. She brings bankruptcy and commercial litigation experience that will be valuable to our corporate clients. Britt also understands well the challenges and needs of in house counsel as she previously served as general counsel of a Richmond based sports marketing and management company."
Since 2009, Britt also has been a volunteer coach with Henrico Adult basketball and soccer, in association with the Special Olympics. Britt says her inspiration began at home: "I have a sister with autism, so I have always been familiar with the joy that working with this population can bring. After listening to an athlete for Special Olympics address the crowd at a UR basketball game in 2009, I decided to sign up and get involved. I have been coaching soccer and basketball for the Henrico adult team since and I will occasionally act as a partner player for the adult softball team."
While still a 3L at the University of Richmond School of Law, Britt served as a volunteer at the Carrico Center for Pro Bono Service where she argued a case before writ panel of the Virginia Supreme Court. In a University of Richmond article about her work for the center, Britt had this to say: “It was nerve wracking to have my first ever court appearance be in front of the highest court in the state,” she says, “but I remembered the words of a wise teacher who said, ‘Don't ever let fear keep you from doing what you want to do.’”
At commencement, Britt was honored for her advocacy and dedication to the school, community, and the legal profession when she was selected by the faculty as the recipient of The Nina R. Kestin Service Award.
