Titus, Nancy Raiden, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Oklahoma City attorney John R. Couch received the 1992 Journal Record Award for distinguished public service in the legal profession Thursday at the annual Law Day luncheon sponsored by the Oklahoma County Bar Association.

Couch, 77, has been practicing law for 52 years and is a member of the Pierce Couch Hendrickson Johnston & Baysinger firm of Oklahoma City.

He was the 12th recipient of the award, which was presented by Larry Fisk, president and general manager of the Journal Record Publishing Co. He was chosen to receive the award by the Oklahoma County Bar Association.

Last year's winner was G.M. Fuller, founder and president of the Oklahoma City firm Fuller, Tubb and Pomeroy.

Couch, a native of Harrah, is still an active legal practitioner, specializing in insurance law.

He has received numerous honors during his career, including the Distinguished Service as a Lawyer Award from the Oklahoma Bar Association and a 1989 listing in The Best Lawyers in America. He received his 50-year award from the Oklahoma County Bar Association in 1990.

He was honored for his leadership and service by the Oklahoma Association of Defense Counsel in 1967, the year he became a life member of the American Bar Foundation.

Couch also has received appreciation awards from the American Bar Association, one in 1979 from the Section of Insurance, Negligence and Compensation Law and one from the President's Club, Fund for Justice and Education.

He was recognized by the state bar association for being a faculty member of the Continuing Legal Education Institute in 1982 for The Anatomy of a Negligence Case.

Couch received his undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Oklahoma, where he was a member of Phi Delta Phi. He was admitted to the Oklahoma bar in 1940, the same year he was admitted to practice before the Oklahoma Supreme Court. He was admitted to federal courts in 1945 and went before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit in 1949. He was admitted before the U.S. Supreme Court in 1991.

Couch's published works for the American Bar Association's Torts & Insurance Section include: "Legal First Aid for Medical," which was published in August 1966, and "Federal Pretrial Procedure," which was published in August 1973.

He was president of the Oklahoma Chapter of the American Heart Association in 1972-73 and served as a member of its board from 1969 to 1974. …
