Patricia Lee “Trish” Refo will be sworn in as president of the largest voluntary association of attorneys and legal professionals in the world during the American Bar Association’s first-ever virtual annual meeting that begins today (July 29). Last month, Refo met virtually with the officers and board of governors during the ISBA Annual Meeting.

A partner in the Phoenix law firm of Snell & Wilmer, Refo talked with the governors about efforts that are underway to address issues related to the privatization of fee and fines in the criminal justice system. She also discussed issues of racial equity, the independence of the judiciary, access to justice and diversity and inclusion in the profession.
