On May 5, 2017, the Workers’ Compensation Section of the Philadelphia Bar Association presented the 2017 Martha J. Hampton Award to attorney Niki Ingram.
The Martha J. Hampton Memorial award honors former Galfand Berger partner, Martha Hampton, who was committed to the practice of Workers’ Compensation law.
Michael McGurrin, a partner at Galfand Berger, talked about Martha. He noted that her interests went beyond the individual cases she litigated. Martha believed in the viability and importance of the Workers’ Compensation section of the Bar Association. She was a past president of the section and participated in activities as varied as writing informative articles for the Legal Intelligencer to testifying before subcommittees in Harrisburg on proposed legislation.
Ms. Ingram, a Shareholder at Marshall Dennehey, is the director of that firm’s Workers’ Compensation Department. She graduated with distinction from Smith College and received her juris doctor from the University of Pennsylvania Law School. Ms. Ingram has worked in the public interest sector, for the government, and in the private sector. Her practice mirrors Martha Hampton’s professional characteristics: extraordinary professionalism, exceptional advocacy, and commitment to civility and integrity in the practice of law.
In honor of the Martha J. Hampton Award, the law firm of Galfand Berger, LLP makes a charitable contribution — on the Section’s behalf and in honor of the award recipient — to Kids’ Chance, an organization that helps youngsters who have lost a parent due to a work related injury gain a higher level of education.
Galfand Berger proudly founded Kids’ Chance and encourages youngsters or their families to apply for a scholarship from this organization. You can find more information here: Kids’ Chance Scholarship Application.
