Judge Charles Price will be recognized and honored on Nov. 14 at the Montgomery County Bar Association (MCBA) event, “The Distinguishable Judge Roast.” Having been on the receiving end of a roast myself, I can tell you it is a dubious honor! At least in the case of a roast like this, that benefits the community, underneath all the good-natured ribbing that is part and parcel of a roast, there is genuine affection for the person being roasted, and a heartfelt desire to help other folks.
The MCBA event, which is the organization’s ninth annual charity event, will honor Judge Price for his 31 years of service as a circuit judge in Montgomery County. All proceeds from the event will benefit Mary Ellen’s Hearth at Nellie Burge Community Center, Medical Outreach Ministries (MOM) and the Montgomery Volunteer Lawyer Program. If any person is fortunate enough to become a judge – state or federal – I can think of no better example for them than Judge Price.
Judge Price has certainly made a tremendous impact on the Montgomery community, as well as the River Region and beyond, in his many years as a lawyer and a judge. He began his legal career at the Department of Justice, Washington, D.C. He returned to Alabama as an Assistant Attorney General. The Attorney General for the State of Alabama appointed him Acting District Attorney for Escambia County. He later became Deputy District Attorney for Montgomery County, until he entered private practice. Judge Price was appointed Assistant Municipal Judge for Montgomery County. April 4, 1983, Governor George C. Wallace appointed him Montgomery County Circuit Judge. Among his many awards and honors, Judge Price received the 1997 John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award of the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation and the Alabama Democratic Conference John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award. Judge Charles Price, a truly outstanding jurist, is a great American.
Mary Ellen’s Hearth at the Nellie Burge Community Center is a ministry to help homeless women and children through God’s love. The facility offers hope through providing life skills training, help by providing transitional housing, and healing through Christian love and support. Medical Outreach Ministries (MOM) provides free quality health care to the uninsured and medically underserved in Montgomery, Autauga and Elmore counties. As a witness for Jesus Christ, MOM exists to minister to the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the people it serves. The Volunteer Lawyer Program provides free legal services to low-income Alabamians in civil matters. As lawyers, we are uniquely qualified to provide this type of assistance. If we do not help these folks, who will?
