Recognize Promising Young Lawyer with Kirby Nomination


As the panel of judges for the Robert E. Kirby Award, we urge you to think about your colleagues, age 35 or younger, who have made an impression on you and consider nominating them for the 2007 New Hampshire Bar Foundation Robert E. Kirby Award.


Those of us who knew Bob Kirby, who was 35 when he died in 1996, remember him as a very talented and effective attorney, blessed with extraordinarily sound judgment, a genuinely and thoroughly good person who was proud to be an attorney and destined to be a legal star. Bob Kirby was the kind of young attorney who accepted every legal assignment with enthusiasm, who worked hard, diligently researching and preparing his cases, and who was not only civil and courteous, but unabashedly friendly toward everyone. He was a young man of good humor, who graciously volunteered his help, and who easily asked for help as well—a joy to work with and to be around.


We elevate the legal profession by recognizing and rewarding intelligent, principled, and compassionate attorneys. The Kirby Award serves as an inspiration to all lawyers and we hope you will participate by carefully considering a nomination. Please turn to pages 14 and 15 to read about some of the exceptional attorneys who have received the Kirby Award over the past 10 years. The nomination form can be downloaded from the Bar Foundation’s web site:
