Kennesaw, GA (May 12, 2021) – Williams Elleby is proud to announce two achievements by firm partner Chase Elleby – his graduation from Georgia Trial Lawyers Association (GTLA) LEAD Program, and his election to President of Cobb County Bar Association Younger Lawyers Division.
The GTLA LEAD Program (LEAD stands for “Leadership Education & Advanced Direction”) was founded in 2013 for the purposes of educating GTLA’s youngest and newest members on both the benefits and expectations of membership and building strong relationships between young promising trial lawyers from all four corners of Georgia as well as diverse trial practice areas. Its mission is ultimately to better prepare tomorrow’s leaders, today.
Through an intense application review and selection process, 18 attorneys, including Elleby, were chosen to participate in the program in August 2020. The GTLA LEAD Program includes qualified applicants with less than 10 years of experience working in a legal practice, or those who are 35 years old or younger. The program consisted of six sessions throughout the state in which members heard from judges, legislators and other attorneys about various topics covering law, politics and general leadership.
“It was an honor to be selected to the GTLA LEAD class for 2020-2021,” says Elleby. “I enjoyed learning from others and growing my network to better serve our clients and the state. I’m looking forward to using the leadership skills and industry knowledge I’ve gained to serve in my new role as President of Cobb County Bar Association Younger Lawyers Division.”
The Cobb County Bar Association Young Lawyers Division is a section of the Cobb County Bar that is exclusive to all young and new lawyers to the Cobb County Bar Association, one of Georgia’s largest local bar organizations. As President, Elleby will lead monthly meetings that highlight speakers who are thought leaders in their legal areas of expertise. Additionally, he will lead the group by encouraging participation in the Bar Association through volunteering, networking and other community-building opportunities.
“Chase has been working hard over the past few years to establish himself as an excellent attorney and firm partner while also becoming involved in professional opportunities within our broader legal community,” says Joel Williams, Partner and founder of Williams Elleby. “I am proud to see that his hard work and dedication to our profession continues to be recognized by leading lawyer groups like GTLA and the Cobb County Bar Association, and know he will continue doing a great job serving our community through his new role.”
