News for Our Members

1. Check out this article that was written by Lisa Moore for ALPS:  https://blog.alpsnet.com/5-qualities-every-new-attorney-should-look-for-in-a-mentor.

2.    The Attorney General of Virginia, the Young Lawyers Division of The Virginia Bar Association, and the Federation of Virginia Food Banks invite you to participate in the fun-friendly Statewide Legal Food Frenzy to help fill the shelves with nutritious food at the Foodbank of the Virginia Peninsula. Over the past several years, law firms, legal organizations, and law schools who participated in the Statewide Legal Food Frenzy have raised the equivalent of more than 10 million pounds of food. This year, our hope is to raise even more food and funds, so that we can meet the increased demand at the seven Virginia Foodbanks. To learn more about getting involved and to register to participate in support of the Foodbank of the Virginia Peninsula, please visit www.legalfoodfrenzy.com or http://www.hrfoodbank.org/eventdetail/85/legal-food-frenzy.html.

4The Newport News Bar Association has a Young Lawyers Committee and invites your participation in this Committee. The Young Lawyers Committee is open to members of the Newport News Bar Association who are under the age of 36 or who have been in practice for less than five years. If you are interested in joining the Young Lawyers Committee and meet the criteria for membership, please contact Joshua Goff at josh@goffvoltin.com. 

If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please let us know. We would like mentors to be attorneys with at least five years experienced who are willing to meet with a young attorney. Please think about having coffee or lunch with a young attorney to pass on words of wisdom to him or her.

If you are interested in being mentored, please also let us know. We would like to help new attorneys bridge the gap from law school to practice.

Please contact Joshua Goff, the chair of the Young Lawyers Commitee, to express your interest. His email address is josh@goffvoltin.com.  Please provide him with your name, address, telephone number, and email address.

Thank you for your interest in this program!
