Hands-On, Local Touch
Our attorneys have extensive connections in both Missouri and Illinois. BALB attorneys are members of BAMSL, DRI, NSPII, NAMWOLF, WLA, the CLM, and the NRRDA. The attorneys are members of the St. Clair County Bar Association, the East Saint Louis Bar Association, the Illinois State Bar Association, and the Missouri Organization of Defense Lawyers. Our partners serve on the boards of preeminent organizations, including NRRDA and BAMSL. We routinely serve as faculty members for CLE programs on a local and national basis. One of our firm‘s strengths is its commitment to the community. In 2005, the firm‘s managing partner founded Step It Up, a charity committed to providing free shoes and socks to underprivileged children in the local community. The firm is also active in fundraising for organizations like SIU Foundation, which supports scholarships at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. The firm is involved with the sponsorship of three scholarships, The Clemens Scholarship, which is for female law students; The Annual Ping Pong Scholarship, provided to the winner of the school's annual ping pong tournament; and The Class of 1991 Scholarship.
