Judge Robinson O. Everett inducted into NCBA Hall of Fame
The General Practice Hall of Fame of the North Carolina Bar Association enshrined six North Carolina lawyers on Thursday evening, June 15, at the outset of the 2006 NCBA Annual Meeting in Atlantic Beach. The ceremony was held at The Dunes Club.
Attorneys comprising the 2006 induction class are: Robinson O. “Robbie” Everett of Durham; Clifton L. “Clif” Moore Jr. of Burgaw; William G. “Bill” Pfefferkorn of Winston-Salem; Rudolph G. “Rudy” Singleton Jr. of Fayetteville; Sen. Robert Charles “RC” Soles Jr. of Tabor City; and E. Murray Tate Jr. of Hickory.
The Hall of Fame, sponsored by the NCBA’s GP, Small Firm and Solo Section, was established in 1989. Membership is granted in recognition of a lifetime of exemplary service and high ethical and professional standards and for serving as a role model for all lawyers in North Carolina.
To be eligible, lawyers must have practiced law for at least 25 years, a significant portion of that time having been devoted to the general practice of law, and be members in good standing of the N.C. State Bar.
Inductees have exhibited throughout their practice the highest standards of ethics and professional competency, and have rendered a high level of service to the legal profession and their communities.
Section Chair Carlton Williamson and Past Chair Dawn T. Battiste who chaired the Hall of Fame Committee this year participated in the program. NCBA President Mike Colombo presented plaques to the inductees, who bring membership in the Hall of Fame to 100 attorneys.
