Sussman Shank LLP is proud to announce that our attorney, Hansary Laforest, has been elected to serve on the Multnomah Bar Association (MBA) Board of Directors. Hans will serve a three-year term, which begins on June 1st.

Hans has been a member of the MBA since 2018. In 2021, the MBA awarded Hans the Young Lawyers Section (YLS) Award of Merit.  He was one of just four recipients to receive the award for demonstrating leadership, outstanding commitments, and contributions to the MBA programs, and exceeding the standards defined in the MBA professionalism statement.  Hans also served as a co-chair of the YLS Service to the Public Committee, where he helped champion successful events in the community.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to work alongside my outstanding fellow MBA board members, and I look forward to serving the legal community here in Multnomah,” says Hans.

Congratulations, Hans!
