I will be named YLD chair this weekend in Wilmington at the NCBA Annual Meeting. It is a tremendous honor, and many great leaders have come before me. The YLD does a number of wonderful projects such as Wills for Heroes, Project Grace, Legal Link and Legal Feeding Frenzy to name a few.
Lawyers are needed now more than ever. We have a legislature who has passed and continues to pass unconstitutional laws. They are trying to kill the legal profession. We cannot allow them to do this. Lawyers are too important.
This year I will be focusing on the Innocence Project and minority groups such as LGBT, African American, Hispanic and Latino and Asian Americans. These groups are the most vulnerable groups, and they need out help.
