The Atlanta Lawyer August/September 2019 - Page 9

This issue's theme of The Atlanta Lawyer focuses on getting to know your Atlanta Bar Association, committees and its members. We asked the Boards a few getting to know you questions! KEVIN PATRICK Kevin Patrick Law An Atlanta native, Kevin was born and raised in Kennesaw, Georgia and has been a member of the Atlanta Bar Association since the summer of 2011. ABBEY MORROW Legility Abbey was born in Orlando, Florida and joined the Atlanta Bar Association in 2015. WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR ATLANTA BAR WORK HIGHLIGHTS? I got my start with the Bar by volunteering on The Atlanta Lawyer Editorial Board. Since then, I've served on the CLE Board of Trustees and the SideBar Steering Committee. I'm also the immediate Past Chair of the Corporate Counsel Section, and I'll help with whatever else our fearless president Ryan and Executive Director Terri need! FAVORITE SUMMER SIDETRACK? Google the band Hello Peril from the Netflix film, "Always Be My Maybe." Their song, Tennis Ball, is a catchy reminiscent of The Roots and early hip hop. Take a listen. You're welcome. DO YOU HAVE ANY TIPS FOR BAR MEMBERS ON GETTING INVOLVED? Of course! Contact a Committee Chair or Section leader if you're interested in getting more involved with the Bar! WHAT'S ONE POSITIVE THING YOU HAVE DONE FOR YOURSELF AND ONE POSITIVE THING YOU HAVE DONE FOR OTHERS? My son and I really enjoy spending our time volunteering at Brighten Gardens of Buckhead. Brighten Gardens is an assisted living center located in the heart of uptown Atlanta and offers assisted living, memory care, short-term stays and an on-site physical therapy gym. I believe that it's truly in giving, that we receive. IF A MOVIE WAS MADE ABOUT YOUR LIFE, WHICH ACTOR WOULD PLAY YOU? I would have to say Ron Weasley (played by Rupert Grint), given the fact that I've been told I have an uncanny resemblance to him. :) JESSICA WOOD Bodker, Ramsey, Andrews, Winograd & Wildstein, PC Jessica has been involved with the Atlanta Bar Association since 2009. WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR ATLANTA BAR WORK HIGHLIGHTS? I was a Board Member on the Women in the Profession Committee; a recipient of the Outstanding Woman in the Profession Achievement Award; Co-Chair on the Membership Committee; and a recipient of the Distinguished Service Award. I serve as an Atlanta Bar Board Member at Large and I am the Co-Chair of the Law School Outreach Committee. WHAT'S THE SOUND TRACK TO YOUR SUMMER? Lizzo, Juice (“if I’m shinin’ everybody gonna shine”). So positive. WHAT'S YOUR IDEAL SUMMER DAY? Walking with friends (on the BeltLine, Oakland Cemetery, or at Piedmont Park) and scrutinizing other pedestrians to see if they are famous, then seeing a concert at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens.
