HunterMaclean partner Mills Fleming is to be honored by the State Bar of Georgia and the Chief Justice’s Commission on Professionalism with the 17th Annual Justice Robert Benham Award for Community Service. Since 1998 the award has recognized judges and lawyers from the ten judicial districts across Georgia who have made outstanding contributions in the area of community service. The recognitions will be presented on February 23, 2016.
“Mills is an invaluable resource to the greater Savannah community,” said HunterMaclean managing partner Frank S. Macgill. “His expertise and commitment are evident in his distinguished legal career and in his dedication to nonprofit institutions.”
Although the award recognizes a career-long span of community service, Fleming’s work with and board chairmanship for Bethesda Academy, Lucas Theatre for the Arts, and the Telfair Museums form the cornerstones of his recognition. His board service also includes the Savannah Music Festival, the Savannah VOICE Festival, Savannah Philharmonic, the Rape Crisis Center, and the Memorial Health University Medical Center Foundation. Additionally, he has worked to implement programs and fundraising efforts for Savannah Country Day School and the Jewish Educational Alliance.
Mills Fleming’s legal practice is concentrated in the areas of health care and immigration. He is past president of the Georgia Academy of Healthcare Attorneys and a member of the American Health Lawyers Association. As the chair of the health care practice group for HunterMaclean, his practice includes physician contracting, health care industry restructuring, compliance planning, fraud and abuse, and health care policy.
Fleming is one of ten attorneys and judges who will be recognized on February 23 at the State Bar of Georgia in Atlanta. Two lifetime achievement awards will also be presented at the ceremony, which is free and open to the public.
