    member spotlight: Mishell KneeLand

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

    I joined the Austin Bar (which was then the Travis County Bar Association) when I relocated here from New York City in 2002.  I’ve always loved the community service projects that the Bar sponsors and still miss delivering holiday baskets!

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

    I enjoy being able to make a difference and help people solve problems.  If I hadn’t gone to law school, I wouldn’t know any lawyers, so I am always happy when people turn to me for referrals instead of whatever people use instead of the yellow pages these days.

    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.
