Two longtime law firm partners, Stephen T. Bolton, a retired commercial litigator from Manchester, Newman & Bennett, and Paul M. Dutton, a business law- and real estate-focused attorney at Harrington, Hoppe & Mitchell, have been honored by the Ohio State Bar Association for their respective “50 years of service to the community and the legal profession.”

Both lawyers were recognized at the Sept. 20 annual meeting of the bar association’s District 13, which includes nearly 400 bar association-member lawyers who practice in Columbiana and Mahoning counties, according to a news release from the Ohio bar about the recognitions of Bolton and Dutton.
