The Springfield/Clark County legal community and elected officials celebrated Law Day on Monday, May 1, 2017, at the Courtyard Marriott in Springfield, Ohio. Law Day is an annual event, established by President Eisenhower in 1958, to honor the legal system and the principles of government under law. This year, Martin Browne’s Randall Comer had the distinguished honor to be the keynote speaker for the program. Randall addressed the crowd with an inspirational message about finding integrity in the legal system, overcoming misperceptions about the legal profession, and the importance of education to inspire the next generation of leaders to uphold the rule of law.
Randall eloquently spoke of his journey to becoming an attorney. He honored his fifth grade teacher, Ms. Diane Condia f/k/a Ms. Brown, for encouraging him to attend college and strive for excellence throughout his life. And, he encouraged his fellow practitioners, and everyone involved in the legal system, to always be accessible, authentic, and dedicated to bridging the gap between the legal system and the individuals that need our services.
Last spring Randall was elected President Elect of the Ohio State Bar Association and he will begin his term as President on July 1, 2017.
