Margaret Cooper Roney and John Dotson, Fellows, Memphis Bar Foundation
The Memphis Bar Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Memphis Bar Association. Its mission is to advocate and support public awareness of the legal system, promote social justice and legal education, and encourage and recognize professionalism among members of the Bar.
Each year the Memphis Bar Foundation selects a small number of prominent Memphis lawyers as Fellows of the Bar Foundation. They are selected not only for their accomplishments in the legal profession but for their commitment to the mission of the Memphis Bar Foundation.
We congratulate Maggie and John on becoming the latest LT Memphis attorneys to receive this well-deserved honor.
