Morning Mail: Join Your County Bar Association
On May 9, 2006, the Grafton County Bar Association held its Spring Meeting at the Common Man Restaurant in Plymouth. We were honored to be joined by then-president of the NH Bar Association, Richard Uchida, and a guest speaker, Perry Curtis, who spoke to the group on the forensic aspects of the 1880 Jack the Ripper murders. Curtis is the author of “Jack the Ripper and the London Media” and is a former professor at Princeton and Brown Universities.
I am writing this letter to echo Uchida’s sentiments that New Hampshire attorneys are a vibrant, diverse and interesting lot and that our county bar associations are wonderful organizations to belong to. In fact, the fourth edition of Black’s Law Dictionary defines “bar association” with reference to the Grafton/Coos Bar Associations.
I would like to join Uchida in encouraging attorneys to join their county bar associations. This is especially true for Grafton County where we have such a distinctive and interesting history. To join or obtain information about the Grafton County Bar Association, contact George Spaneas, of Clauson, Atwood & Spaneas, bar president, at 603-643-2102, or myself, Eric Janson, of Janson & Koppenheffer, bar secretary, at 603-448-3224.
