For almost six years, I have had the pleasure of serving the members of the Utah State Bar as a Commissioner. During that time, we have implemented many new projects, policies, and programs to improve the practice of law and the administration of the Bar, including Blomquist-Hale counseling services, a new diversion program for certain OPC cases, e-bulletins, web surveys, e-mail communications, a web-based lawyer referral program, the outside audit of the Bar, a comprehensive review by the Commission of all programs, operations and services, and the adoption of the New Lawyer Training Program.

In these difficult economic times, the Bar must be a community leader and develop ways to assist members in their practices. In addition, the Bar needs to serve as ambassador to the Legislature and the public. Programs like the Young Lawyers’ “Wills for Heroes” serve the community and enhance the public’s view of lawyers. We all benefit when the public appreciates the vital role of lawyers and the Judiciary in society. If elected President, I pledge to serve you by delivering services to assist your practice and programs to improve the profession’s stature in the community. I would be honored to serve and ask for your vote.

The Mission Statement of the Bar is “to represent lawyers and serve the public.” The first duty of the Bar is to represent its members. During my time as a Commissioner the Bar has adopted Casemaker, improved the Lawyers Helping Lawyers/Blomquist Hale program, created the Mentoring Program and adopted a long range plan, which includes review and audit of each program of the Bar.

To remain vibrant and viable the Bar must build on the momentum created and utilize the skills of young lawyers, who are the life blood of the Bar, as well as support women lawyers, the minority bar, and other specialized bar groups. Sections should be independent while receiving support from Bar staff. We must continue to develop legislative relationships and support the judiciary. I will make these goals a priority.

Even though the country is currently undergoing difficult economic times, the Bar can fulfill its core responsibilities without an increase in Bar dues. I will not support any increase of dues and will oppose taxing of legal fees.

My experience as a legislator, president of a national organization, and years of service as a Commissioner qualify me to serve as President-Elect. I ask for your support.
