It’s an exciting honor! Theresa M. Kohlhoff was elected by her peers to be on the Board of Governors of the Oregon State Bar, the entity that fulfills the executive functions of the bar, determines its general policies and approves its budget. Her term will run from January, 1212 through December, 2015. The bar exists, in part, to advance the science of law and to improve the administration of justice. She will begin her orientation on November 17th. One of the benefits we anticipate for the clients of Kohlhoff & Welch will be the connections made with other lawyers all through the state. We will be better informed and made more creative by these associations. It’s a huge commitment but given the stakes today for the court system and the jury trial in particular, it’s where we should focus.
