At our September 22nd meeting , we welcomed Hilary as the newest member of The Rotary Club of Akron.  She is an attorney in BMD's Akron office. Her practice focus is civil litigation and construction law.
Throughout law school, Hilary served as a judicial assistant at the Summit County Common Pleas Court. While at the court, she learned what it means to be a good attorney, a good litigator, and a good advocate. Hilary plans to take the technical and practical lessons she learned in law school and in the courts and apply them to her litigation practice.
She graduated from the University of Akron School of Law, J.D., magna cum laude and Kent State University, B.A., Art History

During law school, Hilary assisted a professor on research for his evidence textbook.
Hilary was a fellow for the Miller Becker Center for Professional Responsibility. As a fellow, she was responsible for assisting in planning and hosting CLE events at the law school. One of these events hosted District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr., the District Attorney of New York County, New York.
Passionate about giving back to her community, Hilary volunteered with the University of Akron School of Law’s Expungement Clinic which has been recognized by the American Association of Law Schools as an "Innovative and Outstanding Program". She also found time to volunteer with Paws and Prayers, a local animal rescue shelter.
