Mr. Tobey plans to focus on issues such as equal access to justice and the expansion and diversification of the bar membership.

Johnston Tobey & Baruch has a lengthy and distinguished history providing leadership to organizations that seek to improve and enhance the practice of law. “We view this level of commitment as part of our responsibility as licensed attorneys in the state of Texas,” says Chad Baruch, a former candidate for president of the State Bar of Texas. “Remaining engaged and working closely with other committed lawyers makes us better representatives of our clients, which is at the core of everything we do.”
