This painting by New Orleans painted Carl Joe Williams is one in a series of paintings commissioned by Tulane University as part of the Tulane Trailblazers initiative. The painting depicts Tulane alum Wayne Lee (’74), who was recognized in September 2019 with this painted portrait as well as scholarship in his name.
Lee, who joined Stone Pigman Walther Wittmann, L.L.C., after graduating from Tulane Law School, has become one of the most respected trial attorneys in the South. He is a longtime member of the Law School’s Dean's Advisory Board and an emeritus member of the Tulane Board of Administrators. Lee was first African-American president of the Louisiana State Bar Association and received the Martinet Foundation’s Lifetime Achievement Award for his life's mission to diversify the legal profession and his mentorship of young lawyers along the way. Lee is a three-time recipient of the Louisiana State Bar Association President’s Award, a member of the inaugural class of the Tulane Law School Hall of Fame and the recipient of the New Orleans Bar Association’s John R. “Jack” Martzell Professionalism Award.
