William G. Colvin

William G. Colvin has been elected as a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation. Individuals are invited to become members of the Fellows, which is an honorary organization of attorneys, judges, law faculty, and legal scholars, because of the outstanding achievements and high character they have demonstrated in their legal careers.

Colvin currently serves as an officer and director of the Chattanooga Bar Association and the Chattanooga Bar Foundation. He has been designated a Mid-South Super Lawyer for personal injury litigation since 2012. Colvin is a founding member of the Brock-Cooper American Inn of Court and served as its third president. He is also a founding member of the Tennessee Association of Construction Counsel and an adjunct faculty member of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, teaching a course on construction law.

Fellows are nominated by their peers and elected by the Board of the Foundation. Membership in the Fellows is limited to one percent of the lawyer population in each jurisdiction. Fellows support the research work of the American Bar Foundation through annual contributions, sponsor seminars, and events of direct relevance to leaders of the legal profession.

The American Bar Foundation serves the legal profession, the public, and the academy through empirical research, publications, and programs that advance justice and the understanding of law and its impact on society.
