For Immediate Release
Tysons Corner, VA | August 31, 2020
Offit Kurman Family Law Principal-level attorney, Richard Gray, has been unanimously selected by the Fairfax County Bar Board of Directors to serve as the Bar’s Delegate to the American Bar Association. Mr. Gray’s term starts effective immediately and goes through the 2022 Fairfax County Bar Annual Meeting.
In order to maintain delegate status, Mr. Gray must attend four midyear meetings throughout 2021 and 2022. In 2021, the meetings will be held in mid-February and mid-August, and are set to be located in Chicago and Toronto. In 2022, the meetings are again set to be mid-February and mid-August, and are projected to take place in Seattle and Chicago.
The Fairfax Bar Association is the only Virginia Bar Association large enough to be able to sponsor a Delegate to the all four of the midyear meetings. The Delegate is not an advocate for the Fairfax County Bar positions or to act as a lobbyist; rather the appointee is responsible for gathering information relevant to the FBA and its core missions, which include new programs and activities where the American Bar Association is leading the way, what is current and what is proposed by the American Bar Association for the advancement of the Rule of Law and administration of justice. This position often goes to a Past Fairfax County Bar President.
At Offit Kurman, Richard A. Gray focuses his practice on Family Law. Drawing on his undergraduate and graduate degrees in psychology, Mr. Gray is sensitive to how these feelings can affect important decisions that a client is trying to make. Knowing that divorce cannot change the past, he directs his clients to the future and helps families rebuild their lives with dignity and emotional stability. Rather than spending unnecessary resources prolonging conflict, Mr. Gray works with clients to find solutions for moving forward and maintaining civility with each other, especially for the sake of children. Mr. Gray is an experienced litigator, yet he always looks for ways of reaching an agreement outside the courtroom. By educating his clients on the full continuum of divorce options, including collaborative law, mediation and litigation, he enables them to be in control of their decisions. Clients appreciate his one-on-one involvement with their cases and the direct access he provides.
