The Dallas Association of Young Lawyers has selected Phillips Murrah attorney Kim Beight Kelly to join the association’s exclusive Leadership Class for 2019.
Each year, the DAYL selects approximately 40 young lawyers of all practice areas, firm sizes and levels of experience to participate in the DAYL Leadership Class. The Leadership Program was created in 1997 as a way to reach out to young lawyers who wanted to make a difference in their community and the bar.
“I wanted to get involved with the Leadership Class because I want to learn how I can better serve my community,” she said. “My family and I benefit a great deal from the efforts of community leaders, and participation in this group will be an amazing opportunity to meet some of those leaders and learn how to follow their example.
“I look forward to getting to know other young lawyers who also want to get out there and take a more active role in making Dallas the amazing city that it is.”
The DAYL Leadership Class provides opportunities for young lawyers of all backgrounds to develop relationships with local city leaders and network with one another. With over 800 alumni, including judges, general counsels, law school professors, city leaders, and law firm-named partners, the Leadership Class has been emulated by bar associations across the state and the country and serves as a gateway for leadership among lawyers in the North Texas area.
Kim is a civil litigator who represents individuals and corporations in both federal and state courts who works in the Firm’s Dallas office.
