Many lawyers who represent personal injury clients and Social Security disability claimants believe the Dallas Bar Association exists solely for the benefit of the large corporate law firms. There is definitely some truth to this, but in spite of that, I have been a member of the Dallas Bar Association for almost my entire career. I believe it offers enough to small firm lawyers and to the public to make supporting it worthwhile.
For instance, the Association’s Web site has a long list of community service groups. This is just one of many benefits offered to the lay public.
