Often, firms ask their attorneys to run for high-profile bar positions as a marketing strategy to draw in clients. But my candidacy for BCBA YLS Treasurer, is nothing of the sort.
Rather, my run stems directly from my demonstrated passion for helping address the struggles and achieve the aspirations of young lawyers in our circuit
In addition to my involvement in volunteer organizations and my role in creating educational opportunities for young lawyers, my service on the Board of Directors of the Broward County Young Lawyers Section over the last 4 years — including serving as Secretary, co-chairing our charity golf tournament, judicial reception and social committee — has given me the opportunity to engage in in-depth conversations with many of you. I’ve been inspired by your career ambitions that go beyond your own advancement to a passion to make our profession more purpose-driven and responsive to the needs of society today.
I believe that I have demonstrated that like you, service to our profession, our community and society as a whole is not an endeavor that I take lightly. That’s why I’m asking for your support in allowing me to expand my efforts to serve the interests of our growing young lawyer community in Broward County — as a peer who shares your passion for purpose and to come alongside you to make our profession even more worthy of tremendous young leaders like all of you.
