COLUMBIA, SC (WLTX)- A well-known Columbia attorney passed away.
Morrison was a partner of Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP, according to the company website.
Columbia Mayor Steve Benjamin on Sunday issued the following statement on the passing of Steve Morrison:
"Today, our city lost a true leader. Steve Morrison dedicated his life to fighting for justice and improving the lives of those around him. But he was far more than a fine attorney. He was as passionate about the arts as he was the future of the city he chose to make his home. He was a man who was as quick to laugh as he was to cut through inequality and intolerance. He committed himself to changing the standard of public education in our State and did so," Benjamin said.
"Steve Morrison made a tremendous mark on Columbia and citizens in every field of endeavor. South Carolina has lost one of its finest."
"I extend my deepest sympathies to Steve's wife Gail, his son Gregory, the entire Morrison family and everyone who was fortunate enough to know him. He was taken from us far too soon and will be deeply missed and we keep them in our prayers."
