Tallahassee attorneys, Loula Fuller and Dan Myers, endow professorship at Florida State University College of Law

Jan 01, 2004

TALLAHASSEE—Tallahassee attorneys Loula Fuller and her husband Daniel Myers, both 1985 graduates of the Florida State University College of Law, have presented the law school with a $150,000 endowment.

The gift will be used to establish the Loula Fuller and Dan Myers Professorship, which allows the law school’s dean to recruit or retain an exceptionally productive legal scholar for a five-year term.

“The law school has defined my adult life and provided opportunities I never dreamed of for myself and my family.” Fuller said. “Being able to practice law and develop as an attorney in an area that is challenging and allows me to litigate major cases has put me in the financial position to be able to give back to the law school. My hope is that others will have similar opportunities.”

The Myers & Fuller law firm is a nationally known boutique that represents car and truck dealers in more than 40 states in litigation against auto manufacturers in state and federal courts and in administrative proceedings. Since its inception in 1987, the firm’s practice has focused primarily on motor vehicle franchise law, and the representation of motor vehicle dealers in more than 40 states. The firm has played a major role in representing state motor vehicle dealer associations before state legislatures and has drafted numerous state statutes regulating the franchise relationship between manufacturers and dealers.

In addition to motor vehicle franchise law, the firm’s practice includes representing clients in commercial litigation, environmental regulation, and appeals before both state and federal courts.

“We are grateful for all Loula and Dan have done for us, from being guest lecturers to creating this wonderful endowment,” said Don Weidner, dean of the law school.
