The Philadelphia Bar Association, founded in 1802, is the oldest association of lawyers in the United States. The mission of the association is to serve the profession and the public by promoting justice, professional excellence and respect for the rule of law.

That mission is in impeccable hands and the association's leaders are very well served by the devoted, day-to-day direction of Mark Tarasiewicz!
