    Wisconsin Rapids attorney re-elected to State Bar Board of Governors

    MADISON, April 25, 2003 - Attorney James T. Quinn has been re-elected to a two-year term on the State Bar of Wisconsin Board of Governors, the body responsible for managing and directing the affairs and activities of the statewide association.

    As created by Supreme Court Rule, the State Bar is governed by a 48-member Board of Governors consisting of six officers, 34 members elected by State Bar members from the association's 16 districts, five elected by divisions of the State Bar, and three non-lawyers appointed by the Supreme Court. As policy makers, the Board of Governors and officers influence the future of the legal profession and the delivery of legal services in Wisconsin.

    Quinn, who received his J.D. from Marquette University Law School in 1977, is a shareholder in the firm Metcalf & Quinn S.C. He is the liaison to the State Bar's Health Law Section, is a member of the Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) committee, and volunteers for the Lawyer Hotline program. In addition, Quinn gives back to his community by serving on the boards of the Riverview Hospital Association, McMillan Library and Adult Day Care Center.

    The State Bar of Wisconsin is the mandatory professional association, created by the Wisconsin Supreme Court, for attorneys who hold a law license in Wisconsin. With more than 20,000 members, the State Bar aids the courts in improving the administration of justice, provides continuing legal education for its members, and assists Wisconsin lawyers in carrying out initiatives to educate the public about the legal system.
