CITATION UPON INDUCTION INTO THE COLLEGE
Charles Vigil is an outstanding example of what an innovative, creative leader can do in managing a law firm; developing next generation talent in that firm; and applying the very best principles and indices of strong law practice management. Beyond his firm, he is a leader in the legal profession in New Mexico. Among other accomplishments, he was a key player on the State Bar Committee that developed an extensive, mandatory (via New Mexico Supreme Court Rule) mentorship program for new attorneys and the specific course of study that that program involves – a course of study that has a heavy focus in elements designed to enhance how lawyers practice law, how they manage their practices, and how they view and contribute to firm management. ln his service to his firm as its long time, indispensible managing partner, and in his creative service to the enhancement of law practice management in the State of New Mexico, Chuck is a true stand-out. lt is a pleasure to welcome him as a new Fellow of the College.
