A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Welcome and thank you for visiting our website. Whether this is your first visit or a return visit, we hope that you will find plenty of useful information about our members and the Indian River County Bar Association. If you are looking for an attorney, please use our “Find an Attorney” page which allows you to search by Area of Practice or by Name. You will find that there are many qualified attorneys in our Association who can handle nearly any situation that calls for legal assistance. Remember, only licensed Florida attorneys can provide you with legal advice, unlike paralegal services and other “legal service providers” who are not regulated by the Florida Bar and the Florida Supreme Court.
As we embark on another year of service, I would like to take this time to share just some of the ways our Association continues to offer assistance and support to our community. We will have our free “Ask a Lawyer” days at the Courthouse throughout the year. Please check this website frequently to look for announcements of upcoming dates. We will also continue our Law Week activities that place lawyers throughout the community offering advice as well as educational opportunities to hundreds of elementary, middle and high school aged children. Our Lawyers’ Auxiliary will continue their Tools to Learn program that provides needy children with school supplies and Summer Learning Kits. Of course, we also are continuing our annual charity softball game against members of the Indian River County Medical Society, which has raised over $10,000.00 for the United Way of Indian River County.
To our members, I look forward to another great year with monthly luncheons, our holiday party, a Law Week breakfast and bar-b-que, as well as opportunities for Pro Bono service and CLE credits. Of course, if you have any suggestions as to how we can improve our Association, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thomas W. Tierney, Esq.
Indian River County Bar Association
