NH Bar Foundation: Waystack, Rice Named Honorary Fellows

Waystack and Emily Rice were named 2013 Honorary Fellows by the Bar Foundation, in part due to long service on the Judicial Selection Commission. Foundation Chair Jack Middleton (second from left) and former Gov. John Lynch made the presentation.
At the Foundation Fellows and Donors Reception at the Midyear Meeting, former NH Gov. John Lynch made a special appearance to recognize Philip Waystack and Emily Rice, co-chairs of his Judicial Selection Commission as the Foundationís 2013 Honorary Fellows.

Lynch said the two put in an enormous amount of time into their volunteer positions. "Hundreds and hundreds of hours spent interviewing candidates, being on the phone, meeting with me, doing due diligence, reading materials, and so on. I canít thank them enough for what they have done," Lynch said. "The Judicial Branch is like any other organization. The quality of any organization really depends of the quality of the people. I can say unequivocally that the Judicial Branch is better off thanks to the work of Phil and Emily."

Waystack, a past NHBA President, and member of Waystack Frizzell Trial Lawyers in Colebrook, served as co-chair of Lynchís Judicial Selection Commission from 2005 to 2012 and also chaired Gov. Jeanne Shaheenís Judicial Selection Commission from 2000 to 2003.

Rice, of the Manchester office of Bernstein Shur, chaired the NH Bar Foundation Board of Directors from 2001 to 2003, and served as co-chair of the Judicial Selection Commission created by Gov. Lynch, from 2008 to 2012.

The event also included recognition of the IOLTA Leadership Banks and presentation of Justice Grants. See the for details.

Supreme Court Rule 42(9) requires all NH admitted attorneys to notify the Bar Association of any address change, home or office.
