Past Presidents

The Desert Bar Association was established to maintain the honor and integrity of the profession of the law, to increase its usefulness in promoting the due administration of justice, to cultivate social activities among its members and to support and administer programs and activities consonant with such goals.

Each of our past Presidents has played a significant role in achieving these goals. They were elected because of their commitment to the legal profession, their passion for promoting it, and for their exceptional leadership skills needed to perpetuate the DBA.

Below are our past Presidents.
