Federal Court Committee


To provide a forum for Columbus Bar members to learn more about our U.S. District Court practice and procedures. To provide an opportunity for a direct dialogue with a number of the magistrate judges and judges of the Southern District of Ohio on topics of interest and concern to the federal practitioner. To build on the momentum begun in 1996-97 and continue to increase participation and involvement of Columbus Bar members in the Federal Court Committee.

A Message from the Committee Chair:

Thank you for visiting. I’m honored and excited to chair the Federal Court Committee this year. My goal is to provide helpful content – from substantive practice information to meeting other federal practitioners and the opportunity to dialogue with judges, magistrates and court staff. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or ideas!
