Hendershot, Cannon & Hisey, P.C. is pleased to announce that Attorney Raymond Panneton has been nominated to become a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation (ABF), a nonprofit legal organization and the nation’s leading research institute for the study of law since 1955. The nomination, which Mr. Panneton has accepted, is a prestigious honor reserved for legal professionals who have demonstrably dedicated their careers to the welfare of their local communities through the advancement of legal study, and who have exemplified the highest standards of professional conduct and ability.
An honorary society comprised of judges, lawyers, legal scholars, and other professionals dedicated to the art of law, The Fellows of the American Bar Foundation reserves membership to less than one percent of all lawyers practicing in each jurisdiction. To gain membership, members must be formally nominated by their peers and elected by the ABF board.
Mr. Panneton’s nomination is a direct result of his tireless commitment to not only providing clients throughout the state of Texas with exceptional business and civil litigation representation, but also his commitment to advance the impact and understanding of law, legal institutions, and legal processes through research-based projects, empirical evidence, and social science analysis.
Over the course of his career, Mr. Panneton has solidified his role in expanding the local and legal community’s collective knowledge through his efforts as as Editor-in-Chief of The Affiliate, serving as an editorial board member of The Houston Lawyer, and having his work published by local, state, and national publications (including articles in the Texas Lawyer, The Houston Lawyer, and The Legal Intelligencer, among others). His contributions to the legal profession also include the development of informative and educational resources, publications, and materials for Texas Bar Continuing Legal Education (CLE) courses.
As discussed in a previous blog, Mr. Panneton is also currently working on a practice resource book, which was approved by the ABA Section of Tort, Trial, and Insurance Practice. Set for publication in 2018 through the ABA, the book – The Sword and The Shield: Effectively Using Medical Records During Litigation – is intended to serve as a comprehensive instructional guide, complete with checklists and forms, to aid law students and lawyers who advocate for injured victims or must effectively use medical records during litigation.
