I’m proud to announce my new membership into the Skagit County Bar Association.
The organization is a voluntary professional association of lawyers who live and practice in Skagit County, Washington. Among other things, the organization gives pro bono legal help to low-income residents in need of legal services via their Volunteer Lawyer Program. Members also enjoy access to networking opportunities and a profile in the Association’s online directory. Finally, young lawyers benefit from lower-cost membership and fun social events that are both educational and great networking opportunities.
Skagit County is a county in Washington with a population of 116,901 as of 2010. Its largest city is Mount Vernon. The county was formed in 1883 from Whatcom County and is named for the Skagit Indian tribe, which has been indigenous to the area prior to European-American settlement.
Being directly south of Whatcom County, I routinely assisted clients who reside in Skagit County and its various municipalities. I’m very pleased to finally and officially joining the Skagit County Bar Association, network with other attorneys and participate in the organization’s community service activities.
