TINA RODDENBERY RECOGNIZED WITH ROSS ADAMS AWARD FROM STATE BAR OF GEORGIA’S YOUNG LAWYERS DIVISION
ATLANTA, June 12, 2020 – Boyd Collar Nolen Tuggle & Roddenbery is pleased to announce that its shareholder Tina Roddenbery has again received the Ross Adams Award from the State Bar of Georgia’s Young Lawyers Division (YLD). This award, which is named after the late Ross Adams who served as the YLD president from 1998 to 1999, recognizes a YLD past president who demonstrates continued support of the organization and its goals.
Roddenbery served as YLD president from 1994 to 1995 and was first recognized with the Ross Adams Award in 2011. This is only the second time a YLD past president has received the award more than once.
“The Young Lawyers Division has always been special to me. From serving as the chapter’s president to continuing my work in support of its committees and officers, I truly believe in what the organization stands for,” says Roddenbery. “I am humbled to receive this award again and look forward to continuing to support the organization.”
The YLD is comprised of approximately 10,000 lawyers admitted to the State Bar of Georgia who are 36 years old or younger or who have been admitted to their first bar for no more than five years. In keeping with its motto of “working for the profession and the public,” the YLD has more than 25 hard-working committees that produce an array of projects and programs. Through the years, the YLD has also gained national recognition by winning several American Bar Association awards for its projects and publications.
Active in the legal community, Roddenbery is president of the Georgia chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and is one of only 33 fellows. She has served as president of the board of directors for the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation and on the advisory board of the Atlanta Legal Aid Society. Previously, Roddenbery also served on the board of trustees of the Institute of Continuing Judicial Education for a six-year tenure.
Roddenbery has more than 30 years of family law experience, including divorce, custody, support modification, legitimation, paternity and contempt, and is one of only a handful of National Board of Trial Advocacy board certified family law attorneys in the state of Georgia. In 2018, the firm’s name was changed to Boyd Collar Nolen Tuggle & Roddenbery to reflect her leadership.
Roddenbery earned both her undergraduate and her law degrees from the University of Georgia.
