A Message from the New President
Friday, June 16, 2023
My fellow trial lawyers,
I am both honored and humbled to begin my term as President of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association.
First, I want to start by congratulating our Immediate-Past President, Tim O'Keefe, on a successful year as President. Over the past year, Tim has provided steady oversight and guidance at the helm of this organization and, as a result, we were able to effectively pursue and implement many important initiatives in this legislative session.
My goal in the coming year is to continue to pursue and defend those initiatives that are so important to our organization, our clients, and our society. There is much work to be done and I can't do it alone. You have a voice in this organization and I will call on you to use it in the coming year. I encourage each of you to get involved by attending seminars, joining committees, working on charitable initiatives, proposing legislation for consideration at our Legislative Retreat, lobbying our elected officials on bills we may propose, or increasing your club membership so that we may continue to work hard for you. You are all our future and we are all in this together.
One State. One Voice. We Want To Hear From You!
– Marisa Bellair, CTLA President
