Each year, one Allen & Allen employee is honored as the recipient of the Marcella Murray Award, named for the beloved Legal Assistant who passed away in 2010. This award is presented to a longstanding Allen & Allen employee who exemplifies the character, service and client-first attitude Marcella showed to both clients and colleagues.

The 2019 Marcella Murray Award recipient is Richmond paralegal, Denisha Edmonds.

Denisha, who joined the Allen & Allen team in 2014, and works with Richmond attorney Robert C. T. Reed, is known for her attentiveness, both to her work and to her clients.

According to Reed, Denisha deserves the award every year.

“I know our clients are getting great service, conscientious attention and excellent guidance anytime Denisha is on the case.  She has an unmatched work ethic and is also committed to helping other legal assistants within the firm.  I’d have to say that she is a true unicorn – incredibly personable, hard-working and smart.  She’s also reliable and I trust her implicitly,” says Reed.

For Denisha, the experience was a full-circle moment.

“The Marcella Murray award was one of the first Allen & Allen events I got to experience when I began working here. I aspired to one day be the recipient, and here I am. I am so honored,” says Denisha.
