Mark D. Copoulos Welcomes Albert S. Dandridge, III

Philadelphia Bar Association
The Philadelphia Bar Association, founded in 1802, is the oldest association of lawyers in the United States. It is a keystone in the ongoing developments of the Philadelphia and Pennsylvania legal systems.

Mr. Copoulos joined the nearly 1,000 lawyers, judges and city officials who gathered to welcome Albert S. Dandrige III as 88th Chancellor of the Philadelphia Bar Association.  The event was held at the Grand Ballroom of the Hyatt at the Bellevue, Broad and Walnut Streets. The city’s busiest and most successful attorneys attended the premiere event.

According the Philadelphia Bar Association, the line reaches close to 1,000 long as well wishers wait in the ballroom and several meeting rooms.  Dandridge is a partner in the law firm of Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis, LLP. He is hoping to improve veterans’ affairs and diversity during his one year tenure.

Attorneys, judges and politicians alike look to the Philadelphia Bar Association for guidance on controversial legal issues; and for an organized meeting ground for professional support and information sharing.

Non-lawyers of the Philadelphia community count on, and look to, the Philadelphia Bar Association for general information on how to address their legal issues and where they can go to find additional information and help.

With more than 200 years of dedicated service to stand on, the Philadelphia Bar Association is firmly rooted in the Philadelphia community as a steady and reliable bellwether.”
