The Chester County Bar Association recently honored Mary-Ellen H. Allen, a partner at Lamb McErlane, at a dinner at Aronimink Golf Club for her service as the association’s President in 2018.
Allen has been a member of the CCBA Board of Directors since 2010 and has served five years on the executive committee.
“It has been an honor to serve as President of the CCBA and an experience I will value for years to come,” she said.
In her role as President, Allen was instrumental in working with the Board of Directors to implement a new strategic plan. The strategic goals include strengthening the CCBA’s services, outcome, and infrastructure.
“We’re proud of what Mary-Ellen accomplished this past year as President of the CCBA and even more proud to have her as a member of our firm,” said Joel L. Frank, Lamb McErlane’s Chairman and Managing Partner.
In 2019, Allen will serve as President of the Chester County Bar Foundation. The CCBF’s mission is to help Chester County citizens understand, gain access to, and benefit from the legal system.
“It has been an absolute pleasure working with Mary-Ellen this past year, and her leadership, professionalism, and ability to collaborate have helped lead the Bar Association to even greater heights,” said Wendy Leeper, Executive Director of the CCBA. “I look forward to working with her this year as the President of our Bar Foundation.”
At Lamb McErlane, Allen is co-chair of the Employment Law Department and a member of the Litigation Department. She concentrates her practice in Employment Law and Commercial Litigation. She has been named a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer, an annual recognition obtained by only five percent of the state’s attorneys, every year since 2011.
