Harrison Gregg Jr., senior assistant county attorney of Harris County, has been inducted into the National Bar Association’s Hall of Fame. Gregg received his law degree from Texas Southern University Thurgood Marshall School of Law in 1971.
“I’m happy to be nominated after 40 plus years [as a lawyer],” Gregg says. Ben Logan, a judge from Michigan who has served with Gregg in the National Bar Association, nominated him for the hall of fame, says Gregg.
“I’ve known him for 25 years,” Gregg says of Logan. “We’ve worked on a number of committees together.” Gregg also says he was recommended for the hall of fame by other lawyers in Houston.
One of the reasons Gregg says he was inducted is his work as a minority leader throughout his career, including serving as one of the first black associate judges in the 2nd Judicial Administrative Region of Texas and twice serving as president of the Houston Lawyer’s Association. He says he wanted to “make sure minority lawyers have a mouthpiece” and “keep an eye on what’s going on for the minority bar.”
