On behalf of Kentucky Defense Counsel’s Awards Committee, we are very pleased to announce the recipients of the 2017 KDC awards, all of whom were nominated by KDC members:
Diplomat: David A. Nunery (Retired) of Nunery & Call, PLLC, Campbellsville
Defense Attorneys of the Year: Ashley K. Brown of Ward, Hocker & Thornton, PLLC, Lexington and Melanie Sublett Marrs of Kinkead & Stilz, Lexington
Young Lawyer: Tia J. Combs of Mazanec, Raskin & Ryder, Co., L.P.A., Lexington
We received quite a few nominations and appreciate all members who took time to nominate their peers. It was not an easy decision because so many of you are deserving of these awards. If your nominee did not win this year, we hope this does not discourage you from nominating a KDC member in the future.
The award recipients will be recognized at the 2017 KDC Fall Seminar, Annual Meeting & Awards Lunch being held on November 9 & 10 at the Marriott Griffin Gate, Lexington. All registration fees for Friday’s seminar includes the Awards Lunch; however, if you are able to only attend the lunch, and possibly bringing along any and all staff, you will have the opportunity to do so. A registration form is attached below (hard copies should be delivered in the next week) which you can mail in with your check or you can register online. If you have any questions, please contact the KDC office.
Congratulations to Dave, Ashley, Melanie & Tia for their great work on behalf of the defense bar of Kentucky!
