Two attorneys, Robert C. Jefferson IV and Kari Springer, have joined the firm.
Jefferson is an associate attorney practicing in municipal government law, as well as land use, land development, and zoning. A former Assistant District Attorney, he spent six years at the Chester County D.A.’s Office prosecuting 19 jury trials and more than 20 bench trials for criminal cases ranging from felonies to misdemeanors.
“Robert’s years of public service are an ideal fit for the firm’s Government Law Department, which is thriving as it represents several local municipalities, including new solicitorships for the City of Coatesville, as well as West Bradford Township,” said Sandra L. Knapp, chair of Gawthrop Greenwood’s management committee.
Springer is a recent graduate of Villanova University’s Charles Widger School of Law, and has served as a Law Clerk and Summer Associate at Gawthrop Greenwood for the past year as she worked toward her law degree. During this time, she focused her practice in the firm’s Trusts and Estates Department, where her research supported the recently changing laws behind attorney-client privilege.
Charles “C.J.” Witherspoon has been elected to the nonprofit’s Board of Directors.
A graduate of Coatesville High School, Witherspoon has worked at QVC since 2010, starting as a Production Assistant and rising to his current title of Content Writer/Producer. He conceptualizes, produces, and directs video productions and manages and produces food photography productions for QVC.com.
But Witherspoon cites his titles of husband, father, and son as most important to him.
“My family is the reason I am where I am today,” he said. “My wife Halli and I strongly believe in giving back to our community in order to provide a better life for those less fortunate than we are. We are also instilling these values in our six-year-old daughter, Lilah.”
