Message from the President

Welcome to the Chattanooga Chapter of the Federal Bar Association. Our Chapter is strong and thriving and we invite you to participate. With approximately 125 members, we are an active Chapter offering regular CLE opportunities, lunches with the federal judges, social hours and gatherings to network and learn more about federal practice, mentoring opportunities, nationwide federal practice resources, and opportunities to help serve the judiciary and the public. For most of us, our work centers around federal court practice in Chattanooga or the surrounding community and membership is an invaluable asset.

I am proud to be the Chapter President for 2017. I have been a Federal Bar Association member for many years and have been actively involved in our Chapter throughout that time. If you are new to the practice of law in Chattanooga or North Georgia, we welcome your membership. As a new practitioner, being a member will allow you to develop relationships with those practitioners most active in our local federal courts. It will also provide you with the opportunity to become familiar with our local judiciary. If you have an interest in community service and outreach, our Chapter has a place for you. Our Chapter and its members facilitate opportunities for numerous schools to visit the federal courthouse, helping to educate hundreds of students about the judiciary.

We invite you to join our Chapter today! If you would like more information or if you have any questions, please email me at or call any time at 423-757-0264. You may also contact our Membership Chair, Zac Greene, at 423-785-8387.
