"I have been a JBA member for 33 years. As a young lawyer, my JBA membership allowed me to meet other lawyers and become involved in the life of the Jacksonville legal community. One of the hallmarks of practicing in Jacksonville is the professionalism and collegiality of the local Bar. The JBA has always been a leader in fostering this environment."

Judge Timothy J. Corrigan, United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida


"I belong to the JBA because it is my obligation as an attorney to actively support our local profession and help it to consistently improve, in hopes that we are judged by our commitment to the practice of law and not by protesters outside the courthouse or lawyer jokes."

Becky Barlow, Stone Lockett


"I belong to The Jacksonville Bar Association because it is comprised of a truly collegial group of attorneys who enjoy serving our community. Through the JBA, I have been able to participate in many service and social projects which positively impact Jacksonville. It allows me to get to know the other attorneys I interact with on a more personal level."

Joni A. Poitier, Moseley Prichard Parrish Knight & Jones


"The JBA is a great avenue for young lawyers to be involved in the community in diverse ways, from professional networking events to social activities, to CLE programs, and charitable endeavors. There is truly something for everyone. I am especially looking forward to the annual Bench and Bar party, which is always a fun event."

Nicole Melvani, Murphy & Anderson
