Birminhgam Bar Foundation The Birmingham Bar Foundation Honors 2013 Fellows Class and 2013 Life Fellows The Birmingham Bar Foundation recognized the accomplishments and charitable work of those in the legal community at its spectacular 2013 Fellows Dinner, which was held on January 19, 2013 at the Vestavia Country Club. The evening honored legal professionals who represent a spirit of excellence in their field of practice in that they have been uncompromising in their adherence to ethical standards and mores, their application of exceptional skills to achieve optimal results for those who they have served and their commitment to enhance and enrich the general prestige of our noble profession to the public. Nearly 100 people attended the black-tie event and the Honorable Thomas A. Woodall, retired Alabama Supreme Court Justice, served as the guest speaker for the evening. Past Fellows, Foundation Board members and Birmingham Bar Association Executive Committee members were among the guests along with Birmingham attorney Anthony Joseph, President-elect of the Alabama State Bar and 2012 Fellows Class member. Members of the 2013 Fellows Class were nominated by previous Fellows because of their work within the legal community and their dedication to public service. Funds raised through the Fellows Program will be used to support legally related charitable purposes of the Foundation. “We are very proud to recognize and demonstrate our appreciation to this prestigious group of lawyers for their generosity and continued support of the Foundation as well as for all they do to uplift our profession,” Arnita Brown Foster, Foundation President, said.
