The Pennsylvania Bar Association has named as its 119th president Franklin County

attorney Forest N. Myers, whose law practice focuses on everything from probate, wills, trusts, and real estate, to municipal law, mediation and arbitration.

Myers, who most recently served as the vice president of the PBA, is also a past president of the Franklin County Bar Association.

Franklin County sits in south-central Pennsylvania, about an hour southwest of Harrisburg, the state’s capitol.

Myers served on the PBA’s Board of Governors from 2007 to 2010 as the unit county bar association governor, and he is a past chairman of the association’s Presidential Strategic Planning Committee, according to a biography provided by the PBA.

Myers is also a member of the PBA’s Solo and Small Firm Practice Section and the group’s Unauthorized Practice of Law Committee.

The attorney also served on the bar association’s Alternative Dispute Resolution, Community and Public Relations, and Professionalism Committees, and was a member of the PBA’s Real Property Probate and Trust Law Section’s Estate Planning Committee.

Myers, a Shippensburg resident who is married with two children, has also been involved in his local community for some time, serving as a past board president of the Shippensburg Area School District during the early 1980s and having chaired the Shippensburg Area United Way.

Myers also served on the Shippensburg Park Commission.

According to the website of the Law Office of Forest N. Myers, the solo practitioner began his practice back in 1974 and has been servicing clients in the area ever since.
