November 21, 2013

Bowles Rice attorney Robert W. Dinsmore was recently nominated as a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation – an honor afforded to less than one percent of lawyers admitted to practice in each jurisdiction of the United States.

Mr. Dinsmore, a partner in the regional law firm's Morgantown office, focuses his practice in energy and real estate law. He is a former member of the West Virginia House of Delegates and has served on the boards of numerous charitable organizations, including the Monongalia County Schools Foundation, Inc. and West Virginia Botanic Garden. He was instrumental in creating the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Morgantown, Inc. and served as that organization's president.  Earlier this year, he was named a Fellow of the West Virginia Bar Foundation.

The Fellows of the American Bar Foundation is an honorary organization of attorneys, judges, law faculty and legal scholars who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in the profession and service to society. Individuals may be nominated as Fellows by their peers and elected by the Board of the Foundation.

The ABF, founded in 1952 by the American Bar Association, has long been recognized as the leading source of research on the legal profession.

Bowles Rice is a regional law firm with more than 135 attorneys and eight regional offices located in Charleston, Martinsburg, Morgantown, Moundsville and Parkersburg, West Virginia; Southpointe, Pennsylvania; Lexington, Kentucky; and Winchester, Virginia.
