Georgia Trial Lawyers Association Selects Chase Elleby for 2020-2021 LEAD Program

ATLANTA – The Georgia Trial Lawyers Association recently announced the selections for the 2020-2021 Leadership Education and Advanced Direction Program, or LEAD Program. This widely acclaimed and exclusive program trains and equips GTLA members who are considered potential leaders in the association with the tools and knowledge to advance in their legal careers and outside of the courtroom.

Through an intense application review and selection process, 18 attorneys were chosen to participate in this program, including Chase Elleby, one of the partners of our firm.

“It’s an honor to be selected to this year’s LEAD class with GTLA,” says Elleby. “I am looking forward to growing my knowledge and network to better serve our clients and community.”


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 2020-2021 LEAD Program begins this month with a kickoff event, followed by six sessions and a graduation at the GTLA Annual Convention & President’s Gala in the spring of 2021.

“I am very proud of Chase,” says Joel Williams, Partner and founder of Williams Elleby Howard & Easter. “He is a warrior and I am glad to see that his hard work and dedication to our profession is being recognized by the leading trial lawyer group in the State of Georgia, GTLA.”

“The GTLA LEAD program is one of the single-best sources for identifying and honing the talent in our association” remarked Lyle Warshauer, President of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association. “These 18 attorneys were chosen from one of the most competitive selection processes in the program’s history, and I know that they will uphold the successful legacy of the LEAD program as they work toward becoming the future leaders of our association.”
