During 2014, the West Virginia Bar Foundation will be celebrating its 25th anniversary!
Incorporated as a non-profit charitable organization on December 30, 1988, the initial       incorporators were Kemp Morton of Huntington and Jim MacCallum, who was practicing law in Madison. The first President was Bob Steptoe of Bridgeport. These three excellent lawyers were important leaders of the Bar at that time.
During the coming months, the Bar Foundation Board of Directors has planned activities to highlight the Bar Foundation’s 25 years of philanthropic service to the legal profession and to the justice system in West Virginia.



The 16th Annual Bar Foundation Fellows Dinner will be held on Thursday, April 24, 2014 at the Marriott Hotel in Charleston.
This year’s group of distinguished members of the judiciary and the legal profession will join approximately 300 previously named Fellows out of more than 5,000 lawyers and judges in the       state. The criteria for Bar Foundation Fellows is—“Those lawyers whose professional, public and private careers have demonstrated outstanding dedication to the welfare of their communities and honorable service to the legal profession with the individuals selected reflecting the diverse nature of the legal profession in West Virginia.”

The members of the 2014 class of Bar Foundation Fellows will be announced in the next Bar Brief.
The well attended event (black tie optional) Fellows Dinner will include special 25th Anniversary events. The cost is $150 per person or $1,500 for a table of ten persons.


The Bar Foundation’s Board of Directors is very pleased to announce that Bob Noone, “the Perry       Mason of Parody”,  will  present his legal music at the Bar Foundation Fellows Dinner on Thursday, April 24, at the Marriott Hotel in Charleston.
Bob, still practicing law in Logan, will be joined by his group, the Well Hung Jury, for this premier performance. Bob has performed his special brand of law related music for over two decades, here in West Virginia and across the country.
His current hits include the Edward Snowden song and the Mayoral Candidate Anthony Weiner Sing-a-long, as well as the all time favorite, the McDonald’s Coffee song.
Join your colleagues at the Bar Foundation Fellows Dinner on Thursday, April 24, at the Marriott Hotel in Charleston to honor another outstanding class of Fellows and to commemorate the Bar Foundation’s 25th Anniversary with an extraordinary presentation of the Bob Noone Show!
