Trying to channel the spirit of an old Big Stone Gap lawyer

I've got a case where the dude I need to call is Joshua Fry Bullitt, Jr.

Unfortunately, he died in 1933.

I thought his story was pretty interesting, but as you can see, some others disagreed and tried to whack that article about him.

If you didn't know it, counting Bullitt there are 13 past presidents of The Virginia Bar Association on Wikipedia, including 9 former Virginia Supreme Court justices, 5 former members of the House of Delegates, 4 former members of the Senate of Virginia, 3 former members of the U.S. House of Representatives, 2 former members of the Confederate Congress, 1 former U.S. Senator, 1 former U.S. Attorney - and Bullitt.
