Welcome to a new year with the RCBA! My name is Keith I. Braunfotel, Esq. and I was recently installed as President of our organization this past June.  I am very honored to have been nominated to serve as President and I look forward to the opportunity to work together.  I have worked on behalf of the Bar Association for over 18 years, and have served for many years as the Chairperson of the Assigned Counsel Plan.

It is important to me, as I am certain it is to all of you, for us, as attorneys, to make a difference in our community.  We are part of a learned profession, and thus, we are all held to a higher standard.  No matter if you are a member of the Bench or the Bar, we all have taken an oath to uphold Justice and to advocate for our clients and the litigants; and with that comes the most important task; we have a responsibility to speak the truth, to fight for the rights of not only our clients, but for all people who seek help.

There are exciting changes and challenges coming to the Bar Association.  Over the next year the Courts will be implementing sweeping criminal justice reform, significant changes to the laws that govern the rights of landlords and tenants, and court ordered mediation.  Each change will create an obstacle and opportunity for our clients.

I know that one way we can accomplish this is for each of us to be an active part of our Bar Association and to work together.  If you are not already a member, JOIN!  If you are a member, please RENEW and JOIN one of our Committees!  I am very eager to work with the members and our committees so that we can reach a broad range of members in our Community.


Sincerely yours,

Keith I. Braunfotel, Esq.
