Poff accepts Groot award

Veteran Roanoke lawyer William B. Poff has been honored with the Roger D. Groot Professionalism Award from the Ted Dalton American Inn of Court in Salem.

Poff was president of the Virginia State Bar in 1981-82 and is a Master in the American Inns of Court. Poff has been a “role model for lawyers all over this state for more than five decades,” said Senior U.S. District Judge Robert E. Payne of Richmond, who spoke at the ceremony for Poff Monday.

Poff has an “extraordinary gift to speak to jurors at any level,” said Roanoke U.S. District Judge Samuel G. Wilson.

Poff said the Groot award is a “fitting conclusion to my legal career.”
