Gregory S. Coleman Outstanding Appellate Lawyer Award
The Gregory S. Coleman Outstanding Appellate Lawyer Award was established in 2011 in honor and memory of Gregory S. Coleman. The award celebrates the high ideals and standards that Greg demonstrated in his appellate practice and personal life.
As a living tribute to Greg’s life, a $10,000 unrestricted gift will be made annually to the Texas Bar Foundation for grants relating to access to justice initiatives, civic education concerning the law, victim services, the welfare of children, and judicial education.
The recipient should exhibit an outstanding appellate practice while maintaining a strong commitment to providing legal services for the underserved. Dedication to mentoring young attorneys should be evident as well as a strong moral compass to guide both professional and personal pursuits.
