I am proud to be a new Fellow of the American Bar Foundation. Membership in the Fellows is limited to less than one percent of lawyers licensed to practice in each jurisdiction. They are recommended by their peers and elected by the Board of the American Bar Foundation. As a Fellow, I am joining a group of other lawyers, judges, and academicians who have demonstrated dedication to the welfare of their communities and upheld the highest principles of the legal profession.
