Fall Swearing-in Ceremonies
The King County Bar Association held three Swearing-in Ceremonies over two days, October 30th and 31st, serving more than 200 new attorneys and their families. Presiding Judge Richard McDermott (pictured above) officiated over the three ceremonies and addressed the new lawyers with words of inspiration and sincerity.
Featured speakers at the ceremonies included U.S. Attorney Jenny Durkan, Seattle City Attorney Peter S. Holmes, King County Prosecuting Attorney Dan Satterberg, KCBA President Richard E. Mitchell and KCBA First Vice President Anne Daly. They described their career paths, offered encouragement and emphasized the importance of giving back to the community. The KCBA Young Lawyers Division was well represented by YLD Chair David Keenan, YLD Vice Chair Skylee Robinson and YLD Trustee Tom O'Toole. The YLD representatives shared their insight of real-world practice and invited the new attorneys to join KCBA YLD.
Many thanks to everyone who volunteered to make our ceremonies a big success!
