The Texas Bar Foundation has selected Allan DuBois, Kelly Frels, Harriet Miers, and Terry Tottenham to receive Outstanding 50 Year Lawyers Awards.
The award recognizes attorneys whose practice has spanned 50 years or more and who adhere to the highest principles and traditions of the legal profession and service to the public.DuBois is a solo practitioner in San Antonio. He is actively engaged in trial work and enjoying serving as a credentialed mediator. DuBois is a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates, volunteers for Texas Lawyers for Texas Veterans, and currently is chair-elect of the Texas Center for Legal Ethics.
Frels is currently of counsel to Bracewell in Houston. He is considered by many as the “father of Texas school law.” Frels previously chaired the Texas Center for Legal Ethics and is a Texas Bar Foundation sustaining life fellow.
Miers is a partner in Locke Lord in Dallas. She currently serves on the Texas Access to Justice Commission, as co-chair of the Legal Services Corporation Leaders Council, and chairs the Center for American and International Law Board of Directors.

Tottenham launched Texas Lawyers for Texas Veterans, which provides pro bono legal services to needy veterans and their families—the program has since been replicated in all 50 states.
