Assistant County Attorney Harrison Gregg, Jr. named to Bar Association Hall of Fame
County Attorney Vince Ryan announced today that Senior Assistant County Attorney Harrison Gregg, Jr. was recently inducted into the National Bar Association’s Hall of Fame. Mr. Gregg is only one of five members from across the United States who were inducted into the Hall of Fame at the Association’s annual convention in July. The Hall of Fame was created in 1986 to honor those lawyers who have been licensed to practice for over 40 years and who have made significant contributions to the cause of justice. Founded in 1925, the National Bar Association is the nation's oldest and largest national network of predominantly African American attorneys and judges with about 44,000 members.
Mr. Gregg joined the Office of the Harris County Attorney in 1999, serving as a civil prosecutor in child abuse and neglect cases. He has handled thousands of cases involving abused and neglected children. Mr. Gregg is currently assigned to the County Attorney’s Compliance Practice Group where he appears in court hearings daily and represents Harris County in cases in Justice Courts, County Civil Courts at Law and the District Courts.
After having served in the United States Army, Mr. Gregg attended the Thurgood Marshall School of Law at Texas Southern University. He became a founding partner of Bush & Gregg Law Office. He has served as city attorney for the city of Kendleton, Texas. His accomplishments include having been the first African American to be appointed Associated Judge IV-D Master for the Second Administrative Judicial Region for the state of Texas in 1987.
Mr. Gregg is currently a board member of the Houston Lawyers Association, a panel chair of the State Bar of Texas Grievance Committee, and a board member of the National Bar Association’s Judicial Council Division.
County Attorney Ryan said, “Our office is pleased to have attorneys of the caliber of Harrison Gregg. We applaud his commitment to public service.”
Harrison Gregg is congratulated by County Attorney Vince Ryan.
