nikki maplesmember spotlight: Nikki Maples

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

I have been a member of the Austin Bar since 2011. My favorite thing about the Austin Bar is the camaraderie of the members. I have served on many committees and the collective energy and enthusiasm about the various events and causes allows lawyers from different areas of law to blend and feel like a larger legal community.
