Seasoned veteran attorney Gregory R. Gifford is ready to take the reins of the Montgomery Bar Association and take the opportunity to provide his unique approach to leadership.
Gifford, a partner at Rubin, Glickman, Steinberg & Gifford, is set to be sworn in as Montgomery County Bar Association’s president during the group’s annual business luncheon Friday at Blue Bell Country Club. He takes over the bar leadership position from Mary C. Pugh, who is executive director of the Montgomery Child Advocacy Project (MCAP), writes Max Mitchell for the Legal Intelligencer.
“I realized there’s a bit of a disconnect between the bar association and the multiple different county and row offices, and they can greatly benefit from having greater access to the bar and it’s lawyers,” he said. “They come into contact with residents of Montgomery County every day who need help and guidance. By improving those relationships we’ll all work as one big family to improve the lives of everyone in Montgomery County.”
Gifford started with his law firm in 1984, giving him the opportunity to work on personal injury cases and to volunteer for conflict cases, and later began working in municipal law, which led to several solicitorships throughout the years.
Gifford is a long-time member of the bar and has previously served as president of the Montgomery County Trial Lawyers Association.
