Fellows in the College are selected advocates who represent plaintiffs and defendants in civil proceedings of all types, as well as prosecutors and criminal defense lawyers. Membership can never be more than one percent of the total lawyer population of any state.
Inducted were: Mark A. Abramson of Abramson, Brown & Dugan in Manchester; Michael P. Lehman of Sulloway & Hollis in Concord; Wilbur A. Glahn, III of McLane, Graf, Raulerson & Middleton; Peter W. Mosseau of Nelson, Kinder, Mosseau & Saturley in Manchester; Richard C. Guerriero of the NH Public Defender; Mark L. Sisti of the Sisti Law Office in Chichester; Michael C. Harvell of Sheehan, Phinney, Bass + Green in Manchester; and R. Peter Taylor of McNeill, Taylor & Gallo in Dover.
Also in attendance was Joan Lukey, president-elect of the College and the first woman to be elected to the position.
