Taking the helm at the ABA

Amy Keller | 12/28/2016

Hilarie Bass started as a summer associate at Greenberg Traurig three decades ago, the law firm had just one office in Miami. Today, the firm has 38 offices around the world, and Bass, co-president of the firm, is gearing up to take the helm of the American Bar Association in August. In a recent interview, Bass talked about the future of the profession, her priorities as ABA president-elect and highlights of her career. The interview begins:

Access to Justice: “Many people don’t even realize they have legal problems. Maybe it’s a fight with their bank over a mortgage foreclosure, or a landlord over their rental unit, or somebody who fixed their car and didn’t do a good job but took the money. Most Americans at some time have an issue that’s legal in nature. Many of them don’t realize that it is legal in nature and that a lawyer could assist them. It’s a matter of not only providing information about what types of problems are legal problems, but then how to access legal assistance.”
