New Lawyers Settle in Suite 1050
Shannon Dawes and Mary Lewis are the two newest resident lawyers to join the Columbus Bar inc Professional Development Center.
Dawes, a 2010 graduate of Capital University Law School, comes to the legal community from the banking industry. Lewis is a 2011 graduate of Moritz College of Law, hooded with the most recent class of new attorneys. Now settling into their offices and becoming acquainted with their colleagues in the incubator program, both officially open their solo practices this month.
Jocelyn Armstrong, a current inc attorney, is the newly installed program administrator. As administrator, she will coordinate educational and networking opportunities for the new attorneys as they launch their practices.
The Columbus Bar inc Professional Development Center offers new lawyers an environment that provides an array of business support resources – an office facility, equipment, mentoring, training, and specially designed networking opportunities to help a new lawyer build a successful practice based on sound business principles. In exchange for the services provided by the Columbus Bar, participants agree to accept at least one pro bono case during their one-year term, creating an additional source for serving the unmet legal needs in central Ohio.
Columbus Bar inc, relying on the support of local partners, is currently seeking financial contributions, in-kind donations of needed services, educators, and mentors. This investment in the support of Columbus Bar inc helps strengthen the local community by providing a solid foundation for new lawyers to acquire hands-on experience while delivering quality legal services to those in need.
