Corpus Christi, Texas (PRWEB) May 15, 2012
Michael G. Terry, Partner in the Corpus Christi office of Hartline Dacus Barger Dreyer LLP, has been invited to become a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation. The invitation is based upon the recommendation of Fellows residing within Texas. Selection as a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation is recognition of a lawyer as one whose professional, public and private career has demonstrated outstanding dedication to the welfare of the community, the traditions of the profession and the maintenance and advancement of the objectives of the American Bar Foundation.
“It’s a great honor to be included in this exclusive group of outstanding attorneys,” says Darrell Barger, a partner in the firm’s Corpus Christi office. “We’re proud of Mike and we know that he will make a worthy contribution to the Fellows.”
Membership in The Fellows is limited to one third of one percent of lawyers licensed to practice in each jurisdiction. Members are nominated by Fellows in their jurisdiction and elected by the Board of the American Bar Foundation. One of the roles of Fellows is to support the research of the American Bar Foundation. Examples of research topics include the relationship between the Rule of Law and economic, political, and social development; the true scope of the tragedy in Darfur; how families make decisions on the medical treatment of those who cannot decide for themselves; and the political forces that shape judicial independence. Fellows of the ABF also sponsor seminars and events of direct relevance to leaders of the legal profession. The Fellows were founded in 1955.
