Award to Three Attorneys Recognizes Public Dividends of Longtime Friendship
Three giants of the NH legal profession - Jack Middleton, David Nixon, and Kimon Zachos - will be presented a collective Distinguished Service to the Public Award by NHBA President James J. Tenn, Jr. at the 2010 Midyear Meeting.
Although all three have individually been recognized before by the NH Bar, Tenn decided to present them with an award recognizing their career-long dedication to public service. The idea to recognize the three as a group highlights the force for public good that their enduring and close friendship represents.
Middleton, a senior partner of the McLane, Graf, Raulerson & Middleton firm, Nixon, of the Nixon, Raiche, Vogelman, Barry & Slawsky firm, and Zachos, of Sheehan Phinney Bass + Green, have been friends for more than 50 years. These three Manchester attorneys, all leaders in their law firms and in many community organizations, get together almost every month for breakfast and, through the years, have collaborated on many professionalism and community leadership initiatives, over ham and eggs.
"Their service is exemplary because of its duration of more than five decades, and the profound influence that service has had on those who have known them," said Tenn. "Such service is extraordinary and these individuals deserve to be honored."
