Association Health Plan (AHP) Goes Live for ASB Members

The Alabama State Bar Board of Bar Commissioners approved the adoption of an Association Health Plan (AHP) for members in March, and our plan became effective August 1. With our AHP, members have the ability to choose as many as three health options, two dental options and the vision plan. This unprecedented level of customization is truly in the best interest of our members and will allow our plan to be valuable and remain viable. View the plan here.

Send Us Your Stories!

We are excited to bring back the #MoreThanALawyer series! Lawyers are service-minded, and we want to show how you give back to our communities and our state. One of President Methvin's goals is to highlight the public service of attorneys in Alabama, through their volunteer work on corporate and charitable boards, youth sports and religious organizations. 

Email us a photo depicting how you’re #MoreThanALawyer, and include information about what the photo shows. We’d like to share your stories on our website and social media pages. You can also nominate a fellow attorney to be featured.

Volunteer Lawyers Program Anticipates Need

Please consider joining the Volunteer Lawyers Program to assist clients pro bono. We are anticipating the need for more attorneys in the area of bankruptcy as a result of the continued economic impact that COVID-19 has had on the citizens of Alabama.
