Former Chancellor Reich Receives Wachovia Fidelity Award

Abraham C. Reich, former Chancellor of the Philadelphia Bar Association and a partner with Fox Rothschild LLP, received the Wachovia Fidelity Award at the Association's Annual Meeting Luncheon on Tuesday, Dec. 4.

The Wachovia Fidelity Award is presented annually by the Association to individuals who have helped improve the administration of justice and exhibited faithfulness to the profession.

Reich, who served as Chancellor in 1995, is a member of the board of directors of Jenkins Law Library and the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board. He is a member of the House of Delegates of both the American Bar Association and Pennsylvania Bar Association.

The criteria for the Wachovia Fidelity Award includes: significant accomplishments in improving the administration of justice (preferably in Philadelphia); the absence of prior recognition for this work by the Philadelphia Bar Association; distinguished service consistently rendered over a considerable period of time or a single outstanding achievement in a particular year; the accomplishment must arise from voluntary activities rather than for services rendered as a paid professional; and it is preferred that the recipient be a member of the Philadelphia Bar Association not now in public office or directly involved with the court operations or any other public service activity.
