Nine ABF Fellows Inducted into Lawdragon 2022 Class Hall of Fame

March 4, 2022, Fellows in the news

Placement on any of Lawdragon’s top 500 leading lawyer lists is a milestone for successful and influential attorneys around the globe, which makes selection for their Hall of Fame an even more exceptional accomplishment. When the legal media mainstay released their list of 2022 HOF Honorees in January, they revealed the inclusion of nine American Bar Foundation Fellows:

Kim J. Askew, Texas Life Fellow, State Chair

Rosemary Alito, New Jersey Life Fellow

Steve W. Berman, Washington Life Fellow

Honorable Stephen G. Breyer, Massachusetts Life Fellow

Brad D. Brian, California Life Fellow

Evan R. Chesler, New York Life Fellow

Marcia L. Goldstein, New York Life Fellow

Harry M. Reasoner, Texas Patron Fellow

Todd A. Smith, Illinois Life Fellow

Inductees find themselves in the company of a small selection of fellow practitioners who have managed to leave an indelible mark on the practice of law, standing out amongst a field of close to 1.5 million lawyers in the United States alone. The Fellows represented have successfully challenged abuses of power, played decisive roles in managing the 2008 financial crisis, argued—and decided—U.S. Supreme Court cases, litigated some of the first sexual harassment matters, navigated investigations with the Department of Justice, Securities and Exchange Commission, and the National Association of Securities Dealers, and become thought-leaders in a wide range of legal fields. To read more about them and their fellow honorees, view the full list here.
