member spotlight: Francesca Ditroia

How long have you been a member of the Austin Bar and what is your favorite thing about the organization?

I’ve been a member of the Austin Bar since 2015. Becoming part of a community is important to me. ABA has allowed me to meet new people and broaden my view about what we, collectively, can do that will make a difference in Central Texas.

What do you like most about being in the legal field?

In law we can be investigators, puzzle solvers and advocates all at the same time. We’re trained in a complex discipline that is meant to help people. The sense of satisfaction I get from that can’t even be expressed.

The member spotlight is a recurring feature on the Austin Bar website, subject to space availability.  If you are an Austin Bar member and would like to be considered for a spotlight, or if you would like to nominate a member for the spotlight, please contact Kelli Horan.
