The Club heard from fellow Rotarian retired Judge Robert Burgess who talked about his career as a District Judge here in DeSoto Parish. Robert is a third generation Judge following his grandfather and father. His son, Rhys, is currently practicing law here, too.
It was very interesting to hear the insights of the legal system and trial workings from the point of view of a judge. He was asked which trial was the most interesting, which the hardest, who was the most talented lawyer that faced him. Robert still keeps up the legal proceedings and practices a little law but is also fully enjoying his retirement.
The next Rotary meeting is 3/15/23 at the Genealogical Library in the Mansfield Female College for lunch. We would love to have you join us!
