Jacalyn A. Colburn Receives Lawyer of the Year Award
Public Defender Jacalyn A. Colburn is presented with clock/plaque by Frank E. Kenison, president of the Merrimack County Bar Association.
The Merrimack County Bar Association convened its annual meeting at the Red Blazer restaurant in Concord on June 6, 2007 to enjoy an evening of fellowship and good food. Public Defender Jacalyn A. Colburn received the group’s Lawyer of the Year Award and was presented with a clock/plaque by President Frank Kenison.
Following a presentation by legal services agency leaders John Tobin and Marilyn McNamara, the Merrimack County Bar Association also voted to contribute $500 to the Campaign for Legal Services. The Campaign combines the fundraising efforts of NH Legal Assistance, Legal Advice & Referral Center, and the NHBA Pro Bono Referral Program.
As part of the evening’s program, Dick Hesse presented “A Conversation with Chief Justice John Marshall.” Marshall, a Revolutionary War veteran, was a prominent moderate in an era of radical political parties. He is generally considered the greatest chief justice in the history of the U.S. Supreme Court for developing a constitutional doctrine and defining the role of the Court in the federal system. He served on the Court for 34 years.
In Hesse’s dramatization, the audience hears the story of Marshall’s life and times from his own lips.
