Talmage Boston

Boston will be honored and presented with the award on June 14 at the Texas Bar Foundation Annual Dinner at the JW Marriott in Austin. Texas Tech University School of Law—Grantham’s alma mater—will receive $5,000 for student scholarships in the study of energy law.

Award winners exemplify “the qualities of an accomplished, talented and dedicated practitioner, a servant of the profession and an advocate for those we serve, demonstrating dedication and service with the same passion” that defined Grantham’s life and work.

Boston, who is a partner in Shackelford, Bowen, McKinley & Norton, is certified in civil trial law and civil appellate law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. He has served as past chair of the State Bar of Texas Litigation Section, Council of Chairs, and Annual Meeting Committee, and he has served on the State Bar Board of Directors and the Texas Bar Journal Board of Editors. He has received eight Presidential Citations for outstanding service.

A graduate of the University of Texas and the University of Texas School of Law, Boston has published four books.
