In 1976, Ronnie Noojin formed the Noojin, Haley, and Ashford firm. In 1980, those three lawyers joined the Hare, Wynn, Newell & Newton law firm, where Ronnie practiced for the remainder of his life. Ronnie served on the Alabama Trial Lawyers Association’s Board of Governors and on its Executive Committee. He was a member and President of the Birmingham Bar’s Executive Committee. Mr. Noojin died on June 17, 1996, after an eight-month battle with brain cancer.

Jere White was one of the founding members of Lightfoot, Franklin & White, LLC, and he is perhaps best known for his skills as a trial lawyer.  For over 30 years, Jere handled significant civil cases of all types in state and federal courts in Alabama and throughout the United States, and he was one of the few lawyers in Alabama inducted into the American College of Trial Lawyers, International Academy of Trial Lawyers, and the American Board of Trial Advocates. What is less known about Jere is his tremendous support of the downtown YMCA.  He was a regular lunch time runner, a board member and chairman, and a generous benefactor to the YMCA for three decades. Jere also was the YMCA’s Volunteer of the Year ­— a real testament to his commitment to the YMCA and its mission.
