Birmingham, AL – White Arnold & Dowd P.C. is pleased to announce that attorney Lisha L. Graham has been selected as a member of the Birmingham Bar Association’s 2014 Future Leaders Forum.  The Forum seeks to cultivate leaders from among a group of motivated attorneys who have been in practice for 3-7 years.  Recognizing a need for leadership identification and development among Birmingham’s young attorneys, a group of Birmingham Bar Association leaders, including White Arnold & Dowd’s Managing Lawyer Augusta S. Dowd, organized the first Forum class in 2009.  Since that time, the Forum has emerged as one of the premiere leadership and professional development experiences for lawyers in their early years of practice.  White Arnold & Dowd’s Kitty Rogers Brown, C. Burton Dunn, Jr., Hope S. Marshall, and T. Shane Smith are all past graduates of the Forum.  “We are thrilled to see our firm’s participation in and support of the Forum continue through Lisha’s membership this year,” said Ms. Dowd.  “She will be a fine member of the class, and will both benefit from and greatly contribute to the overall excellence of the program.”
