Raymond Williams transitions to new role with ABA House of Delegates

TW_Appointment_Raymond WilliamsThe Missouri Bar Board of Governors appointed Raymond E. Williams as past president delegate to the American Bar Association House of Delegates during its July 15 meeting. 

The House of Delegates serves as the policy-making body of the American Bar Association and is composed of legal professionals from local and state bars from around the country. 

Williams will replace Erik Bergmanis as The Missouri Bar past president delegate, and his term will end in August 2024. Williams, who served as 2018-19 Missouri Bar president, is currently the Missouri state delegate to the ABA House of Delegates. He said he is excited to transition into this new role.  

“I am honored to continue serving Missouri lawyers in the House of Delegates and look forward to our ongoing work on policies that help Missouri lawyers even better serve their clients and preserve the rule of law in the United States," Williams said. 

Williams, of West Plains, is heavily involved in national, state, and local bar association activities, having served on dozens of committees. He graduated from the University of Missouri and currently owns Williams Law Offices, L.L.C. 

The Missouri Bar encourages all its members to join committee and section activities. Lawyers can choose from more than 40 open enrollment committees and sections that each specialize in a substantive area of law, practice setting, or community.
