A Message from ALF President Leslie R. Barineau

Leslie BarineauGreetings,

It is with great pride and honor that I am writing this my first President’s Column. I appreciate the opportunity that has been given to me to be President of this well-respected organization. I look forward to working with the Alabama Law Foundation Board and its newly elected officers as well as the stakeholders who have invested their time and financial resources in the Alabama Law Foundation.

Congratulations to our 2023 Fellows Class consisting of 27 lawyers who were recognized at a dinner in May. The lawyers selected for this honor have demonstrated outstanding dedication to the profession and their community and go through a selection process based on recommendations from current Fellows. No more than 1% of members may become Fellows. Such a prestigious honor from colleagues with the Fellows’ gifts supporting projects and programs that benefit Alabama residents and the legal community toward the goal of PROVIDING EQUAL ACCESS TO JUSTICE FOR ALL.

In the coming months look on our website for a spotlight on the various scholarships, grants, and programs that the Alabama Law Foundation is involved in as we continuously work toward the betterment of Alabama citizens in PROVIDING EQUAL ACCESS TO JUSTICE FOR ALL.

Become involved with the Alabama Law Foundation through the various programs we offer and financially through IOLTA, Atticus Finch, ROBE, dues check off, and other financial opportunities that may be offered.

We can do great things when we work together to help others.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or suggestions you may have. It’s going to be a great year!

Warmest Regards,

Leslie R. Barineau
