The South Carolina Bar and University of South Carolina Established “Memory Hold the Door”

The late Johnnie Dodenhoff Fulton was recently recognized by the “Memory Hold the Door” committee established by the South Carolina Bar and the University of South Carolina. The Committee strives to preserve for the inspiration of future generations the high ethical and professional standards of past leaders of the legal profession – by acclaiming and extolling their virtues.

“For Johnnie to be honored this way by the South Carolina Bar association and USC Law shows just what a remarkable attorney and accomplished businesswoman she was,” said Andrew Barr, co-founder of Fulton & Barr Law Firm. “She fought on behalf of workers’ rights for more than three decades. Her passion for her work was genuine, as was her love of life and family. Being her partner and friend was a privilege.”

A graduate of the University of South Carolina School of Law and a member of the South Carolina Bar Association since 1981, Fulton successfully practiced law for more than 35 years, specializing in litigation in the areas of Workers’ Compensation Law and Social Security Disability Law.

Fulton was highly involved in her community, volunteering her time in the service of groups that promote the fair treatment of workers and disabled people, and working to elect candidates who support the rights of South Carolina workers. Her written work on workers’ compensation law was published multiple times, and she taught classes and conducted seminars on the topic.

“Every client mattered to mom on a very personal level. She enjoyed working with her fellow attorneys, and believed that she could make a difference in people’s lives,” said Valerie Fulton, an attorney at Fulton & Barr. “I’m thrilled the South Carolina Bar has recognized her achievements, and I know she’d be honored by this prestigious recognition.”

The South Carolina Bar’s “Memory Hold the Door” Committee identifies and selects individuals worthy of inclusion. The lawyers remembered, therefore, represent a true Honor Roll of the legal profession, selected by their fellow lawyers as best exemplifying the qualities of integrity, professionalism and skill required of the Bench and Bar.
