State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) honored longtime leader in Cleveland’s legal field, Richard “Dick” Pogue, with a House Commendation.  Pogue was named the 2015 recipient of the inaugural Louis Stokes Paragon Award in honor of the late Congressman’s contributions. 

Pogue has been a practicing attorney since 1953, when he graduated from the University of Michigan Law School.  Currently, Pogue is a trustee of the Ohio Legal Assistance Foundation and serves on the bar association’s Chief Justice Thomas J. Moyer Legacy Committee and the Ohio Supreme Court’s Access to Justice Task Force. He chairs the Ralph Regular Center (for civility in politics) Advisory Board and is the chairman of the board of the University of Akron and the Dean’s Advisory Council at Michigan Law School.  It is clear that his leadership is in no way decelerating. 

“It was my distinct privilege to personally honor a dear friend and leader in the Cuyahoga County community,” Rep. Anielski said.  “Dick Pogue exemplifies excellence and integrity in every aspect of the law and I look forward to seeing many more great accomplishments from him.”
