Welcome!

Welcome to the Howard County Bar Association!  The mission of the Howard County Bar Association is to promote excellence in the practice of law and the administration of justice, for the benefit of our community and our profession, through service, education, advocacy, and collegiality.

For our more than 350 member attorneys, we offer a number of monthly luncheon meetings, continuing legal education seminars, our newsletter, The Barrister, and a new lawyer welcome and orientation program.   We also offer our member attorneys the opportunity to become involved with committees which focus on specific topical areas, including practice concerns of young lawyers, substantive law, such as our family, criminal, and estates and trusts sections, and community outreach and education.  Additionally,we sponsor social events such as our crab feast, our annual holiday party, our spring judicial reception, member golf outings, and much more.

Providing access to justice and service to the community are vital components of the Howard County Bar Association. We are proud of our many member attorneys who perform numerous volunteer and pro bono services for those in need.  . Each year, we raise funds from member contributions for important community programs.

Information about all of our programs is contained within the pages of this website. We hope you will find this site both interesting and helpful. Please contact us with any questions or comments so we may continue to improve this site and to improve our service to both our members and the Howard County community.

With every best wish,

Mary J. Pizzo, President
