Jones Waldo Attorneys in the Community

07/16/2013

Our attorneys are busy! Not just in the office, but in the community. Here are a few stories about our attorneys in the news:

Lori Nelson:

In her capacity as President of the Utah State Bar Lori has been acting as spokeswoman for the Bar’s new pro bono initiative, the Modest Means Lawyer Referral Program. Lori has been quoted in the papers, been interviewed on the radio and even speaks for the program in a couple of promotional videos. While Lori’s tenure as president officially ends this summer, her involvement with the Bar and helping Utah’s less fortunate gain access to legal services is something we can all continue to be proud of.

Nate Thomas:

Congratulations to Nate, who, today, officially graduated from the Salt Lake Chamber’s Leadership Utah Program. Nate was chosen last spring from amongst numerous applicants to participate in this one-year program. Over the year, participants are introduced to critical issues and top decision-makers through a series of day-long sessions. It is a big commitment to say the least and Nate did an impressive job of networking and building key relationships. Nate goes on to join the Leadership Alumni group.

Mike O’Brien:

Mike was quoted today in an article in the Salt Lake Tribune. In his role as attorney for the Trib, he commented on how legislation on open-meetings and records exemptions would affect the upcoming Swallow investigation. I’m sure we’ll be hearing a lot from Mike on the role of the media in the Swallow investigation.
