It is my great pleasure to seek nominations for the General Practice Section’s 31st Annual Tradition of Excellence Award.  As trite and sentimental as it may be, my earliest inklings of wanting to be an attorney are linked to my reading Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird in middle school.  The General Practice Section is seeking modern embodiments of Atticus Finch for consideration.  We are seeking nomination for those very special attorneys that serve their clients and communities in an untiring fashion.  We feel it is more important, now than ever, to recognize the individuals who uphold the highest ideals of the Virginia State Bar, especially the bar’s renounced reputation for civility.  As the award is bestowed by the General Practice Section, we give preference to the generalists over the specialists.
