Memphis attorney Charles F. Newman will be honored with this year's prestigious William M. Leech Jr. Public Service Award, to be presented by the TBA's Young Lawyers Division Fellows at the TBA Convention in Memphis on June 15. The Leech Award is presented each year to a Tennessee lawyer who has given outstanding service to the legal profession, the legal system and the local community. "Charlie Newman personifies the William Leech Public Service Award, as a great civil rights lawyer, conservationist and visionary who has shaped the history of Memphis and Shelby County," said TBA YLD Fellows Treasurer Bill Haltom. "He has both witnessed history and made history."
