Pam Fleenor Has My Vote - And Response (2)

Thursday, April 3, 2014

I am an attorney with 22 years of legal experience writing to recommend Pam McNutt Fleenor for chancellor.  I  have known Pam professionally for 22 years, since I started practicing law in Chattanooga, and have gotten to know her as a friend over the last several years. I am confident that Pam is the right person for the next chancellor of Part I of the Hamilton County Chancery Court. 

Pam has an impressive academic career and legal background.  Pam is qualified to be our next chancellor based on her experience, integrity and temperament.  Pam's legal experience is broad covering areas from personal injury to business issues. Hamilton County Chancery Court Part I is the only Hamilton County Court to handle conservatorships and thus, experience in that area is important.  Pam has that experience and has been appointed by our retiring chancellor, the Honorable Frank Brown, as guardian ad litem in conservatorship cases involving dementia and mental health patients, as well as cases involving adoption.  

Perhaps equally important to Pam's experience is her temperament.  Pam will patiently listen to the litigants that come before her and will consider each of their cases fairly under the law.  She has my vote and I hope she will have yours.

Pam Fleenor is great. 

We are fortunate to have someone of Pam McNutt Fleenor’s caliber running for chancery judge in our May election.  Pam is a native of Chattanooga who loves our community.  She will work with determination to ensure that Hamilton County citizens are treated with dignity and respect. 

Pam’s character and ability are without compare.  I have known Pam for 40-plus years.  She is smart, honest, and compassionate with a strong work ethic.  Pam was the salutatorian of Central High School, 1977, graduated from UTC, and then completed law school.  She has practiced law here in Chattanooga all of her career. 

I know Pam well and if you get the chance to meet her, you will feel that you know her well too.   She never meets a stranger.  She is working with diligence to get out and meet as many in our community as possible.  Don’t hesitate to introduce yourself to her. 

I ask for your vote for Pam McNutt Fleenor in our upcoming May election.  You will be proud of the job that she will do for Hamilton County.

I am honored to join former Tennessee Supreme Court Chief Justice Mickey Barker and former Hamilton County Mayor and Governor Haslam’s current Chief-of-Staff, Claude Ramsey, in endorsing Pam Fleenor for Chancery Court.  

I have known Pam since we were undergraduates at UTC, from which she received the Chapin Thomas scholarship from the Benwood Foundation to the University of Cincinnati College of Law. While we began practicing at different firms in 1986, I admired her success in trying jury cases in Hamilton County. She substantially broadened her experience when she shifted her practice to real estate and commercial litigation. We were fortunate in the extreme when she decided to join our law firm.  

Pam brought to our firm her remarkable intellect, her ability to analyze complicated issues quickly, and her varied experiences from a stellar career. Those qualities, together with her calm demeanor and poise, will make her an outstanding jurist. Losing Pam from our law firm will be difficult, but the far greater good of Hamilton County will be served if you join me in voting for Pam Fleenor for Chancellor of Hamilton County Chancery Court.
