Lawyers Run in These Families

Memphis lawyer Jeff Weintraub is a third-generation lawyer who had never been interested in following his dad’s footsteps. "Bless his heart, he never pushed me,” Weintraub tells the Daily News Journal. But now Weintraub is managing partner in the recently opened Memphis office of Fisher & Phillips LLP. His daughter, Betsy, is an associate at the firm, and one of his sons is about to enter his third year of law school. The paper also profiles another multigenerational lawyer, R. Hunter Humphreys Jr., whose father practices law in Memphis, too. People have likely heard of his grandfather. The University of Memphis law school carries his name, Cecil C. Humphreys.
