If what Mr. Fischer says about the turnout being the lowest in bar history, that fact alone says something. It goes to more than just most attorneys not caring. It also goes to the fact that we still have a long way to go in the way of race relations when it comes to the state bar of Texas. As a minority attorney who has been involved in both minority and majority bar associations, committees and sections including leadership roles at both the local and statewide level, I can say that the bar has indeed come a long way from where it was 33 years ago when I first started practicing. Thank goodness we are on the way to progress. My congratulations to Lisa Tatum, who I know will do a great job!

Lawyers can concentrate their practices to certain areas of law, which is typically true of personal injury lawyers. By limiting the range of cases they handle, personal injury lawyers are able to acquire specialized knowledge and experience.

Congrats to Lisa and really to everyone who ran for these non-paying jobs.

Angela you missed some serious issues.
The turnout was near the lowest in bar history; 72,000 attorneys simply trashed their ballots.

I went and campaigned in front of Dallas, Ft Worth, Houston, San Antonio and McKinney Courthouses and most attorneys either consider the bar their enemy or just don't care about it.

This will continue until the bar offers an alternative to their method of anointing their own cronies ( recent committee members of their own committee) behind closed doors. These candidates never make fundamental changes in the bar- because they represent the Executive and Nominations Committees not attorneys.
