There are a number of local bar as-
sociations and committee
s
, including
the Young Lawyers Section of the CBA,
which focus on different practice areas
and demographics. Attending committee
meetings is a great way to meet others
who can help support you in your prac-
tice as a new attorney and throughout
your career.
The CBA Ethics Hotline is available
as a free resource to all local attorneys,
regardless of whether one is a member of
the CBA or not. The hotline can provide
information to attorneys who have
ethics questions related to their work.
Different attorneys staff the hotline each
month, and their contact information
can be found on the CBA website:
www.
cincybar.org/news-resources/ethics-
hotline.phpc.
Callers should provide
scenarios in hypothetical, anonymous
format to protect client confidentiality.
Mentors can also come in unex-

Relations magistrate, a more experienced
former opposing counsel, and several
courthouse staff members. The best way
to develop relationships with such people
is to just reach out to them, ask for help,
and be genuine.
It is critical to your long term suc-
cess as an attorney to build strong
relationships with more experienced
professionals in the legal community. I
urge all new attorneys to use all of the
resources available to them to find a
network of experienced, trustworthy
mentors who they can go to when they
face the inevitable challenges, stressors,
and dilemmas that come with the prac-
tice of law.
