About Us

The Mahoning County Bar Association has over 675 active members and is growing daily.

Committees:  Courts
The Courts Committee acts as a liaison between the Bench and the Bar.  The Committee addresses concerns of the Bar about the practice of law and brings them to the attention of the Bench.  The Committee also brings from the Bench to the Bar concerns that the Bench may have about such matters as the quality of legal services being rendered or steps the Bench may wish to take to make the courts more efficient without sacrificing the quest for justice in each case.  Over recent years, the Bar Association has been working with various local courts to develop or update local rules of practice.  The Committee Chair also reviews and passes upon qualification for lawyers who wish to handle court-appointed criminal cases, and the Chair responds to inquiries, most often from inmates, sent to the Bar Association.
