Ashley Reitz Peinhardt has been elected Secretary/Treasurer of the Birmingham Bar Young Lawyers Executive Board for 2014.

The Young Lawyers Section of the Birmingham Bar Association is one of the largest and most active sections. The purpose of the organization is to encourage the participation of young lawyers in the practice of law.

” I am honored to represent Birmingham’s Young Lawyers as an officer on the Executive Board this year. Last year was a huge success and we hope to make 2014 even better,” says Peinhardt.

Last year, the Young Lawyers Executive Board offered two CLEs for its members throughout the year; hosted numerous social events to foster relationships among  members; raised more than $20,000 for Pre-School Partners, Teach for America, and Urban Ministries.

“We partnered with the Downtown YMCA, Hare Wynn and Lightfoot Franklin to revamp the YMCA Race to the Courthouse in honor of Ronnie Noojin and Jere White which netted $20,000 for the Downtown YMCA and its programs. We also raised more than $5,000 for charity in our annual golf tournament. We look forward to doing even more in 2014 to further our mission.”
