LRIS: From the Chair

By Elisia Frazier, Standing Committee on Lawyer Referral and Information Services

Introducing Staff Counsel Tori Jo Wible

With the new year comes the addition of a new member to the Lawyer Referral community. ABA Staff Counsel Tori Jo Wible joins the LRIS family following in the footsteps of Jane Nosbisch, former Senior Staff Counsel to the Standing Committee on Lawyer Referral Services.  Tori Jo not only will serve the LRIS Standing Committee and LRIS programs nationwide, but also will continue to serve as Chief Counsel to the Standing Committee on Group and Prepaid Legal Services and the Indigent Defense Advisory Group. In addition, her responsibilities include serving as Executive Director of the ABA-affiliated entity the Group Legal Services Association, an umbrella group for all the stakeholders in the Group Legal Services Industry.

In bringing these three areas together under Wible, the strengths of each will complement all programmatic areas. Wible looks forward to bringing her skills and expertise to supporting legal services delivery, both from the consumer and the attorney perspectives.

Tori Jo received her JD from Hamline University School of Law and in her spare time is passionate about charitable organizations such as WomenHeart: the National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease.

Welcome aboard Tori Jo!
