The Chattanooga Bar Foundation introduced five new fellows during the Chattanooga Bar Association’s 2021 Law Day celebration Sept. 15 at The Read House.

Misty Harris (Harris Law Firm), Paul Hatcher (Duncan, Hatcher, Holland & Fleenor), Jim Levine (Baker Donelson), Richard Rose (Miller & Martin) and Jerry Tidwell (Tidwell & Associates) joined the 142 fellows who make up the current roster.

To become a fellow, an attorney must have an outstanding record of service to both the Chattanooga Bar Association and the broader community. In addition, a member of the CBF must nominate the attorney for inclusion.

The CBF serves several roles as an organization, including promoting and improving the legal profession, elevating the ethical standards of the bench and bar, improving relations between the members of the legal profession, the judiciary and the public, providing scholarships and charitable giving.

As a group, the fellows work to improve the study of law, the administration of justice and relations between the members of the legal profession and the public.

The fellows also aim to elevate the ethical standards of the bench and bar, help lawyers who are ill, award scholarships and provide funds for charitable causes.
