The organization is dedicated to elevating the standards of skill, integrity, honor, professionalism and courtesy in the legal profession.
On the local level, the Chapter furthers the message of ABOTA through the law practices of its members and the relationships which are cultivated with other attorneys and the judiciary. Mr. Zohlman’s plans for the new year include increasing membership, furthering civics educational programs and the initiation of a scholarship program for local high school, college and/or law students who are seeking to pursue a career in the legal profession.
