Meridian residents announce professional achievements
Nov. 4, 2001
Bill Hammack has been named a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers.
Created in 1950 to recognize excellence among trial lawyers, the college includes members from every segment of the civil and criminal trial bar of the United States and Canada.
Its purpose, in addition to identifying and recognizing outstanding trial lawyers, is to improve the standards of trial practice, the administration of justice and the ethics of the profession. Invitation to membership is extended by the Board of Regents, the governing body of the college, only after careful examination of the nominee's experience, skill, ability and ethical standards.
Hammack's induction ceremony took place recently during an annual meeting of the American College of Trial Lawyers in New Orleans. More than 900 people were in attendance.
Hammack is a partner in the firm of Bourdeaux &Jones and has practiced in Meridian for 29 years. The newly inducted fellow is an alumnus of the University of Mississippi School of Law.
