President Taze Shepard Honored with Solo and Small Firm Section's 2021 Outstanding Service Award

Alabama State Bar President Taze Shepard has received the 2021 Outstanding Service Award from the Solo and Small Firm Section. The award, given annually, honors a section member who has made significant contributions and demonstrated exemplary service to the section and the solo and small firm attorneys it serves.

During Shepard’s two terms as section chair, section membership doubled, and section member benefits increased dramatically. Shepard is shown here with current section chair Tom Perry.

The Solo and Small Firm Section is the largest section of the Alabama State Bar. Section membership is open to all members of the Bar, but programs and educational offerings are designed to help new, small firm, or solo practioners meet the demands and exceed the expectations of their clients, the courts, the legal profession, and their communities.
