On Friday, January 8, 2016, Dennis Meakim of Howland, Hess, Guinan, Torpey, Cassidy & O’Connell, LLP, was elected to the Board of Directors of the Montgomery Bar Association. The Montgomery Bar Association, or “MBA,” has 2,100 members. The Board is made up of the Officers, the Chairs of the Four Sections (Family Law, Probate and Tax, Trial Lawyers, and Young Lawyers), and the 15 members elected by the membership. Five of these fifteen members are elected every year to serve for a term of three years. Dennis is one of those five most recent elected Directors picked to serve for the next three years.
The Board of Directors of the MBA provides insight and direction to the officers of the organization. The Montgomery Bar Association includes over 60 Committees and Sections covering all aspects of the law and legal practice. The Board serves as a voice of the members and is the voting body for establishing policies and objectives of the organization.
Mr. Meakim had a busy day Friday. He was not only elected to the Board of Directors, but he was also appointed Co-Chair of the Sidebar Committee at the MBA. The Sidebar Committee puts together “Sidebar”, the award winning quarterly magazine of the Montgomery Bar Association. The magazine contains a mix of brief scholarly articles, practice tips, and announcements of the news and events most relevant to the membership of MBA.
Dennis’ practice focuses on family law, business law, and estate planning in the five county area (Montgomery, Bucks, Delaware, Chester and Philadelphia) as well as Camden and Gloucester counties in New Jersey. He also practices in the areas of criminal defense and personal injury. Howland Hess O’Connell congratulates Dennis on this tremendous achievement.
