When I think of the MBA, I think first of the relationships that I have made throughout my years of practice - from YLD happy hours to Mock Trial to innumerable CLEs. Invariably when I work on a case, there is another lawyer or judge involved whom I have gotten to know through my participation in bar association activities. I am convinced that it helps me serve my clients when I know the other participants in a way that goes beyond the confines of that particular case file. - Tommy Parker, MBA Past President
Through my active work with the MBA, I have met many attorneys who specialize in areas of law different from my practice. These connections provide a great source of information and referral options. - Abby Webb, Harris Shelton Hanover Walsh
Being a member of the MBA has allowed me to meet and network with attorneys outside of my area of practice which is important to me. - Damon Griffin, U.S. Attorney's Office
I am a member of the MBA because it is THE representative organization of the Bar in Shelby County. The organization is dedicated to supporting the practices of lawyers in our community and helping to restore the public’s trust in our profession. - Emily Landry, Baker Donelson Bearman Caldwell & Berkowitz
