The Knoxville Bar Foundation will recognize twelve esteemed members of Knoxville’s legal community at their Annual Dinner on Tuesday, May 24, 2016.
Each year the Foundation inducts a new Fellows Class which is less than one percent of the active bar association. The Fellows represent quality men and women practitioners in our community who have distinguished themselves in the practice of law and service.
The Foundation’s board of directors reviews numerous nominations, and determines the inductees who have demonstrated superior legal skills and high ethical standards and service to the community
The Knoxville Bar Foundation is a not for profit foundation established to improve public awareness of the legal system in Knoxville, the administration of justice and the delivery of legal services through the distribution of its funds.
At the next Knoxville Bar Foundation’s Fellows Dinner Chris McCarty will be inducted as Fellow.
Lewis Thomason congratulates Chris McCarty on this well-deserved honor.
