Message from the President


The Montgomery Chapter of the Federal Bar Association covers the Middle District of Alabama. The majority of its members hail from the greater Montgomery area. Our chapter’s mission is to advance collegiality among Judges and attorneys in the Middle District and to promote the welfare, interests, education and professional development of all attorneys who practice in the Middle District. During 2017, the Chapter plans to 1) arrange lunch meetings among attorneys and federal judges in the Federal Courthouse; 2) increase participation in the volunteer lawyer program, known as our Pro se Assistance Program; 3) coordinate a social event for federal law clerks and the local bar association; and 4) provide a continuing legal education program for the members of the Federal Bar.

If you have not already done so, I encourage you to join the Federal Bar Association to begin taking advantage of its benefits. We look forward to increasing interaction among attorneys and Judges and working together to advance the Chapter’s mission.

Allen Sheehan
Montgomery Chapter President (2016-17)
