At the recent annual meeting of the Appellate Section of the State Bar of Texas, Marvin Sloman—one of the founders of Carrington Coleman Sloman & Blumenthal—was inducted into the Texas Appellate Hall of Fame. The honor is curated and awarded jointly by the State Bar Appellate Section and the Texas Supreme Court Historical Society. “The Texas Appellate Hall of Fame recognizes distinguished judges, attorneys, and court personnel who have made unique contributions to the practice of appellate law in Texas from the mid-1850s to the present.” Marvin became only the fourth private practitioner named to the Hall, joining such notables as United States Supreme Court Justice Tom Clark and longtime Texas Supreme Court Chief Justices Robert Calvert and Joe Greenhill.
Marvin brought to the practice of law a remarkable combination of intelligence, wit, humor, superb analytical and writing skills, attention to detail, and commitment to excellence. Those qualities, and his willingness to share them with young lawyers along the way, rightly led to his inclusion with other appellate pioneers in the Texas Appellate Hall of Fame. In support of Marvin’s nomination, Fifth Circuit Judge Carolyn King wrote, “in a circuit in which we are blessed with many excellent appellate lawyers, he was the best, a real gift to us and to his clients.” And, we would add, to his colleagues.
