Tennessee Supreme Court Justice Connie Clark has been named the recipient of the Tennessee Bar Association’s prestigious Justice Frank F. Drowota III Award. It is the organization’s highest honor for service to the judiciary. The award was announced via a Tennessee Bar Association press release.
In naming her as the honoree, the TBA noted specifically Justice Clark’s implementation of the Access to Justice Commissions’s first-ever strategic plan and the creation of the Tennessee Faith and Justice Alliance.
DPBC’s Margaret L. Behm, who served as the first chair of the Tennessee Supreme Court’s Access to Justice Commission, was quoted on Justice Clark’s selection. “No one in Tennessee knows more about the Tennessee judicial system than Justice Clark, Her entire professional life has been devoted to the service of others and the promotion of the rule of law.”
Justice Clark will accept the award during the TBA’s annual convention in June.
Margaret L. Behm was a featured panelist at the Belcourt Theatre’s recent screening of RGB. The film chronicles the life and legacy of pioneering U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Behm joined Judge Aleta Trauger (U.S. District Judge for the Middle District, Tennessee) and Davidson County Criminal Court Judge Angie Blackshear Dalton in a post-screening discussion at the sold-out event, discussing their perceptions of the film in light of their personal and professional experiences in the legal profession.
Candi Henry was a featured presenter at the 2018 Tennessee Business Law Conference. The annual event draws practitioners from across the state and includes presentations on current topics in business law. Henry’s presentation “First Things First” focused on preliminary negotiation techniques that can result in a smoother contracting process.
The Nashville Business Journal’s annual Best of the Bar List has been released, and five DPBC attorneys have been selected by their peers for inclusion on the list.
Each attorney has previously been named to the Best of the Bar List in prior years.
Donald Capparella was a featured presenter that the 2018 Trucking Seminar presented by the Tennessee Trial Lawyers Association. The event was held April 13 at the AT&T Building in Nashville. Capparella’s presentation, “Top 10 Reasons Lawyers Lose Big Verdicts on Appeal” provided insight and commentary as to the current state of the law where personal injury litigation is concerned.
Capparella is the editor of the Tennessee Trial Lawyers Association Magazine.
