Nelson Mullins Mourns Ex-Rep. Butler Derrick

Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough, which tapped the late Rep. Butler Derrick to open its Washington office in 2004 , is mourning the South Carolina Democrat, who died Monday at age 77 .  

(CQ Roll Call File Photo.) "Since opening the Washington office, Butler helped us grow in the nation's capital, which today has more than 40 attorneys and policy advisers. Butler leaves a legacy of gentility and professionalism that won't soon be forgotten on the Hill or at Nelson Mullins," Managing Partner Jim Lehman said.  

Would that all people who work and strive in the capital city aim to be known for their "gentility and professionalism."
