Last month was quite busy for BoltNagi’s Managing Attorney, Tom Bolt, as he was re-elected as Delegate-At-Large of  the American Bar Associate (ABA) House of Delegates, as well as Secretary of the ABA’s Law Practice Management (LPM) Section, at the ABA Annual Meeting in  Chicago, Illinois.

While Bolt has served, and continues to serve, several roles for both the ABA and LPM Section his new role, as Secretary, will be his first position as an officer within the LPM Section.  When asked about his new responsiblility he stated, “I am looking forward to the new challenges and opportunities within the LPM Section.  The LPM Section of the ABA plays a distinctive role of bringing firm leaders together throughout the country and deriving value from their unique insights and it is truly an honor to be part the leading organization for law practice management.”

Traditionally, the Secretary of the LPM Section leads to assuming the Chair of Section. With his election to the Secretary post, Bolt stands to learn the inner-workings of the LPM Section and not only maintain their high standards, but exceed them as well. He is grateful for the opportunity to serve his fellow LPM Section members and sees a bright future of limitless potential and expansive progress for the 2012-2013 bar year and beyond.

Bolt was reelected to the position of ABA Delegate-At-Large.  Bolt said, “It is an honor to serve the ABA as Delegate-At-Large and I truly appreciate this remarkable opportunity. The ABA plays such an important role in the administration and justice and law for the U.S. as well as U.S. Virgin Islands that I am pleased to continue this role in the Association and provide a unique perspective as an attorney from the Territory.”

Since he was first elected to the ABA House of Delegates in 1989, Bolt has advocated for American’s territorities and its legal community, as well as solo and small firms.  As ABA Delegate at Large, Bolt will be involved with the creation of policy within the ABA and, as such, will play a crucial role which will foster the evolution of the ABA and engender its growth and development through the coming years.
