At the Greenbrier on April 1, 2017, Thomas E. Albro received the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award. The award is one of the highest honors bestowed by the VTLA, and has been awarded only three other times since its inception.

The VTLA Lifetime Achievement Award is meant to “recognize a lawyer in practice in the Commonwealth of Virginia for more than 25 years who has exercised effective leadership within VTLA and who has demonstrated lifelong dedication to VTLA’s mission and principles.” Other criteria for the award require that the recipient’s work “demonstrates a compassion and commitment to advocacy on behalf of consumers” and that the individual has “contributed to the advancement of the profession and served the public through teaching, community service, charitable giving or other pro bono work.”

Previous recipients of the award are Richard Railey, Sr., Bob Hall, and Betty A. Thompson.
