DBA Director Robert L. Tobey Running for Re-Election to the Board

Ballots for Dallas Bar Association Board of Directors are due by 5PM on November 23, 2015

Robert L. Tobey is running for re-election to the Dallas Bar Association Board of Directors. Ballots were sent by email (and later by US Mail) asking DBA members to choose six Directors from a slate of candidates. All of the lawyers on the slate are experienced, talented and hard-working.

If you are a Dallas Bar Association Member, we hope that you will consider supporting Robert L. Tobey as one of your six selections. He is Vice-Chair of the Board and was honored to serve as the Co-Chair of the 2014-2015 Equal Access to Justice Campaign. Along with his Co-Chair, Laura Geisler, they successfully led the first $1,000,000 Campaign, and we were awarded DBA Presidential Citations at the 2015 Annual Meeting. Mr. Tobey’s other recent Bar experience is listed below.  If re-elected, Robert will continue to work hard at furthering the DBA’s mission to help all members of the Bar using his perspectives and experience as a trial lawyer for the past 35 years.
