As a member of the Association of Professional Responsibility Lawyers (APRL) I am pleased to announce that I have been appointed to the Committee on the Future of Lawyering. Part of the mission of APRL is to not only comment upon but to initiate positive changes in the laws and regulations regarding professional responsibility. APRL proposals to the American Bar Association have been well received and highly influential. I will be participating on a sub-committee addressing referral fees and fee sharing. I look forward to working with the members of the committee.
