Bridget G. Hoy and Carleen B. Griffith Join the Theodore McMilian American Inn of Court

Lewis Rice congratulates Bridget G. Hoy and Carleen B. Griffith on their recent invitation to join the Theodore McMillian Inns of Court as Associate and Barrister members, respectively, for three-year terms. Invitations are given based on an attorney's years of experience and professional achievement. An invitation reflects that recipients are held in high regard by members of the bar as well as the Masters of the Inn.

This local chapter of the national American Inns of Court was initiated in 2010 by Saint Louis University and was named after the late Honorable Theodore McMillian, who served as the first African-American on the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals, among other distinctions. The St. Louis chapter is run in the tradition of the English Inns of Court and is currently focused on trial advocacy and litigation aspects of the law. Lewis Rice looks forward to having two of its own litigation attorneys join in the effort of the Inn to enhance the quality, commitment, and ethics of trial practice in the St. Louis legal community. The first meeting of the 2014-2015 term was held on September 18, 2014.

Bridget is a litigation partner at Lewis Rice, having tried cases in Missouri, Illinois, and elsewhere involving commercial litigation, intellectual property, consumer fraud, and other matters. Bridget serves as Vice Chair of Lewis Rice's Diversity and Inclusion Committee and also serves on its Associate Development Committee. She was named to the Missouri and Kansas Super Lawyers® listing in several recent years and volunteers with Legal Services of Eastern Missouri and the Saint Louis Public Schools.

Carleen is an associate practicing commercial and civil litigation. She has experience in transportation law, trademarks, and contract review. She was named to the Lawyers of Color Hot List in 2014 and volunteers in the community with Wyman and other charities.
