Lewis Thomason is proud to announce that Bill Haltom is the recipient of the Memphis Bar Association’s 2016 Lawyer’s Lawyer Award!
The Lawyer’s Lawyer Award is one of the Memphis Bar Association’s most prestigious honors, with fewer than 30 recipients since its creation in 1988. One lawyer is chosen each year by the Memphis Bar Association, who has exemplified the aims and aspirations embodied in the Guidelines for Professional Courtesy and Conduct. Being the recipient of this year’s award, Bill adds his name to a list comprised of some of Memphis’ most respected attorneys, including our own John Thompson (2002), Al Harvey (2008), and the late Elizabeth Collins (2011).
The award will be presented to Bill at the Memphis Bar Association’s Annual Dinner on December 8, 2016 at the Holiday Inn – University of Memphis.
Lewis Thomason congratulates Bill on this prestigious honor.
