member spotlight: Travis Plummer

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

Since 2012. I love that the bar reflects Austin’s inclusiveness. I hear stories about some Bar Organizations being very insular, which can happen with any organization. However, the more people I meet in the Austin Bar, the more I see how welcoming and encouraging they are – they really want to serve members of our profession and are willing to help with any project they can.

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

I love that we are a profession which understands and embraces that we have a higher standard than just “going to work” every day. We obligations to our clients and our communities to serve others, and we take that seriously. I also appreciate the significant role that our profession had, and continues to have, in creating and maintaining our nation.
