Welcome to the Clermont County Bar Association


The Clermont County Bar Association is a volunteer, not-for-profit professional organization consisting of legal professionals working and living in Clermont County. Founded in 1937, the CCBA is dedicated to serving the needs of legal professionals in Clermont County through educational opportunities, professional development and support as well as supporting the Clermont County community through service and charitable contributions.    

In recent months, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have worked to continue to provide the same support and services to our membership and the community in new and unique ways. While we have not been able to provide the same social interaction opportunities in the recent months, we have worked to continue to provide educational opportunities within the parameters of proper social distancing.

Our Association’s support of the Clermont County community continues regardless of the pandemic. We continue to provide access to legal representation through our sponsored Lawyer Referral Service, and we continue to provide professional oversight of attorneys through our review of citizen complaints. Further, our organization continues to aid local students through our support of the Ohio High School Mock Trial competition and through student scholarships for higher education. Further, our Association continues to financially support selected organizations in the community.

With a rich and storied history, the Clermont County Bar Association is an institution in and of itself.  To me, the members of the Clermont County Bar Association have always exhibited the highest professional standards and promoted respect, honor, and courtesy to all.  The spirit of fellowship among the members of the CCBA is unique and special, and I am honored to be able to serve in the position of president of this Association. As we work to continue to provide the benefits of education, professional growth and fellowship to members and serve the community during this upcoming year, I hope that I will be a part of the growth and continued success of the Clermont County Bar Association.
