Duncan appointed to Cultural and Heritage Commission

ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA – James David Duncan, an associate with Morton & Gettys, has been appointed to the York County Cultural and Heritage Commission.

Duncan was sworn in as a member of the seven-member commission on Sept. 28. His term runs through July 2017.

The panel provides oversight and guidance to York County Cultural & Heritage Museums and its four facilities: the Museum of York County, Historic Brattonsville, the Main Street Children’s Museum in Old Town Rock Hill and McCelvey Center.

The commission was established in 1997 but traces its roots to 1950, when the Children’s Nature Museum of Rock Hill opened.

Duncan, who was born and raised in York County, joined Morton & Gettys in August after completing a judicial clerkship. Prior to that he had practiced for a year in Rock Hill, representing clients in family law, workers’ compensation and personal injury cases.

His practice at Morton & Gettys concentrates on family law, including divorce, alimony or spousal support, child custody and child support. He’s licensed to practice in North Carolina and South Carolina.
