Volyes James Voyles

A blue ribbon selection committee acting on behalf of the Indianapolis Bar Association and the Indianapolis Bar Foundation has announced the selection of James H. Voyles Jr. of Voyles Zahn Paul Hogan & Merriman as a recipient of the IndyBar’s prestigious Hon. Paul H. Buchanan Jr. Award of Excellence. Voyles will be honored at a luncheon on February 17, 2011 at the Hilton Indianapolis.

In bestowing its most prestigious award – the Hon. Paul H. Buchanan, Jr., Award of Excellence – on Voyles, the Indianapolis Bar Association and Indianapolis Bar Foundation are recognizing Voyles’ distinguished leadership in the legal community and the community at large which has not waned throughout his 42 years of practice.IBA-PastWinners

First presented in 1990, the award is named for former Indianapolis Bar Association and Bar Foundation President Judge Paul H. Buchanan, Jr. who also served on the Indiana Court of Appeals for 22 years. The criteria for the honor states that it is “given from time to time” only when “determined to be appropriate”.

The honor is meant to “acknowledge individuals with long records of excellence and unique service to the legal profession…whose attainments as a lawyer have been notable, whose contributions to the Indianapolis Bar Association have been unique, and whose honorable service to the profession has extended over a significant period of time. The award is given both to reward those accomplishments and to inspire others to such service.”

Friends and associates of the honoree will be included in the award presentation. Registration for the luncheon is now open on the Bar’s website, www.indybar.org. Cost is $30 per person.•
