Memphis Area Attorneys and Judges Honored for Service to the Community & Legal Profession
The Memphis Bar Foundation 2023 Fellows Reception was held recently at The University Club of Memphis. The Memphis Bar Foundation is the charitable foundation affiliated with the Memphis Bar Association. Firm partners Robert Cox and Lauran Stimac have now joined this prestigious group of individuals recognized for their service to the legal profession and the community.
“Being named a Memphis Bar Foundation Fellow is a tremendous honor,” says Terrence Reed, Fellows Selection Committee Chair. “Approximately 1% of Memphis area attorneys are invited to join the Memphis Bar Foundation Fellows each year.”
Robert Cox is a trial lawyer that leaves no stone unturned when helping his clients. Robert’s commitment to his clients goes beyond his passion and dedication during the litigation process. Not only does he help educate his clients on each step of a particular matter and evaluate the matter using his over 25 years of experience, he stands ready to go into the field whenever needed to give his clients the upper hand. Robert’s commitment may range from on the scene accident observation and investigation, to wearing work boots in many environments, to appearing before a jury to argue on behalf of his clients.
As a non-equity shareholder and partner at Glassman, Wyatt, Tuttle & Cox, Lauran Stimac maintains an extensive practice in the area of professional liability and provides strong advocacy and diligent representation of her clients in courts and before state boards and agencies in Tennessee and Mississippi. In addition to her professional liability practice, Ms. Stimac also regularly teaches continuing education courses for lawyers, focusing on ethics and professional responsibility.
The Foundation annually nominates attorneys and judges to become Fellows. Nominees are chosen based on their devoted and distinguished service to the legal profession and the administration of justice and their adherence to the highest standards of professional ethics and personal conduct. The Foundation awards grants to non-profit organizations to support law-related projects and programs that fall within its mission. These grants would not be possible without the financial support of our Foundation’s Fellows.
