Spring Swearing-in Ceremonies
The King County Bar Association held two swearing-in ceremonies on May 16, welcoming 90 new attorneys and their families. Presiding Judge Richard McDermott officiated over the two ceremonies and addressed the new lawyers with words of inspiration and sincerity.
Featured speakers at the ceremonies included King County Executive Dow Constantine, King County Councilmember Rod Dembowski, 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 represented by YLD Chair David Keenan and YLD Vice Chair Skylee Robinson. 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.
