The St. Mary’s Law Alumni Association honored Austin attorney Karin Crump with the initial Distinguished Young Alumnus Award during a luncheon at the School of Law’s Homecoming event on March 30.
Crump, of counsel in the Austin office of Martin, Disiere, Jefferson & Wisdom, graduated from St. Mary’s in 1997.
The Distinguished Young Alumnus Award, in its first year, recognizes an alumnus who has graduated from St. Mary’s University within the past 10 years and has shown outstanding achievement in the legal profession and service to the community.
“Karin Crump is well-deserving of this honor,” said Claude Ducloux, an Austin attorney and president of the Law Alumni Association. “She is an outstanding inaugural honoree. She brings honor to St. Mary’s and to the legal profession, and we are proud to present her with this award.”
Crump, president of the Texas Young Lawyers Association, is a civil litigator and mediator. Prior to joining the Austin law firm in 2003, she was in private practice in Dallas. Her areas of practice include insurance coverage and bad faith litigation, commercial litigation and mediation.
Ducloux will present the award at the Alumni Luncheon at 12:15 p.m. in Conference Room A of the University Center on the campus of St. Mary’s University.
