TRAMAINE Y. TINNER, 2017 JLTLA PRESIDENT
Assistant General Counsel, Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation
Welcome to the JL Turner Legal Association! I am honored to serve as the Association’s 2017 President, following in the illustrious footsteps of those presidents before me. Since its inception in 1952, JLTLA has continuously pursued its mission to improve the quality of life in the black community in Dallas, Texas and its surrounding area through education, service and scholarship.
As an organization committed to the success of its members and future African-American attorneys, JLTLA has sponsored CLE programs, mentoring programs, networking events, election protection efforts and essay contests. These accomplishments are only the tip of the iceberg.
In 2017, JLTLA celebrates 65 years of service the black legal community and the black community at large. We, as black attorneys, have come a long way in these last 65 years, but we still have far to go. I encourage you to browse our webpage regularly and get involved with JLTLA in whatever capacity you can. There can never be too many hands on deck. Join JLTLA in its mission as it continues to serve the community.
