Cary Elected President, John Mercer Langston Bar Association
Dinsmore & Shohl LLP is pleased to announce associate Elizabeth Cary has been elected president of the John Mercer Langston Bar Association, an affiliate member of the National Bar Association. She will serve a one-year term. She previously served the organization’s board as communications chair.
Founded in 1998, the JMLBA formed after the winding down of two previous organizations, the National Council for Black Lawyers and the Robert B. Elliott Law Club. A group of 10 attorneys saw a need to create a new association in Franklin County, and today, JMLBA provides approximately 350 attorneys with regular communications and events. The group’s mission statement is to “promote professional development, networking, mentoring and community activism.”
At Dinsmore, Cary concentrates her practice on litigation. Previously, she clerked for Chief Judge R. Guy Cole, Jr., as well as practiced in New York City. There, she represented businesses and high net-worth individuals at each stage of litigation and in regulatory matters. She received her J.D. from Emory University School of Law and B.A. from Columbia University.
