Message from the President


The Capitol Hill Chapter of the FBA is a unique and special chapter, and I am truly honored to serve as its president. When I arrived in Washington, DC, in 2010, I was new to the area and new to Capitol Hill. But because I was a member of the FBA, I was able to join the chapter and discovered an incredible venue to meet fellow lawyers and become a part of the Capital's legal community.

The Chapter has a deep connection to all of its component institutions, from the Supreme Court of the United States to the House and Senate, the National Judicial Offices, the Library of Congress... the list goes on. Lawyers from each of these institutions serve as chapter officers, on the chapter council, and as valued chapter members. As with the FBA as a whole, the quality and dedication of our lawyer, law student, and judicial officer members gives me deep optimism about the vitality and robustness of our institutions.

During the coming year, I will work to connect our members and strengthen our chapter's support for the high calling of government service, the fair administration of justice, and the best ideals of the legal profession.

I look forward to serving the chapter during my term as Chapter President, and am most grateful for the invaluable assistance of our officers, former chapter presidents, and chapter leadership council.
