It is with profound sadness that the J.L. Turner Legal Association announces the passing of Past President Karen McCloud.

Along with serving as the 2010 President of the J.L. Turner Legal Association, Karen was also the 2004 President of the Dallas Women Lawyers Association, and the 2008 President of the Dallas Association of Young Lawyers. She was the current First Vice President of the Dallas Bar Association, and slated to be the 2022 DBA President.

Karen was a pillar in the Dallas legal community, and a friend to all she encountered. Her accomplishments and contributions are immeasurable. She has supported and mentored countless attorneys, powering through her illness to attend programs and events. She lost her courageous battle against cancer on April 9, 2020, with her devoted mother, Carole, by her side.
