Will County Bar Association Celebrates 150 Years of Legal Excellence at Fall Gala

SPONSORED

The Will County Bar Association, a non-profit professional organization, serves and supports the legal community in Will County by providing education, professional development opportunities, and service programs for its members, the legal profession, and the local community.

Attorney Erin Webster O'Brien currently serves as the President of the WCBA. "I've been a member since I began practicing law in 2004," she explained. "I've been on the Board of Directors since 2011. I'm happy to carry on the traditions of service that are set forth in the Bar objectives."

The objectives of the Will County Bar Association include maintaining the integrity of the profession of law, promoting an understanding of the law and its application in the community, and supporting the Bar's ability to provide public service, including offering an active Lawyer Referral Service and encouraging members to provide Pro Bono services for those in need. To celebrate the past 150 years of legal excellence in Will County, the WCBA will host a fabulous gala on October 10, 2019.

"This special event, which is open to the entire community, will be held at the Renaissance Center of Joliet, located at 214 N. Ottawa Street," said O'Brien. "Guests can enjoy a cocktail hour beginning at 5:30 p.m., and dinner starts at 6:30 p.m. The program itself begins at 7:15 p.m. It will be a wonderful evening of camaraderie, and of honoring and celebrating the legal community."The evening's guest speaker will be John R. Lausch, Jr., who currently serves as the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois. "John grew up in our community, and graduated from Joliet Catholic High School, now Joliet Catholic Academy," added O'Brien. "Marzell Richardson, Dan Egan, Frank Cservenyak, and Dorothy Seaborg will also share their knowledge of legal excellence and history in Will County."
