"I joined the WSBF Board because I believe that the Foundation brings to the forefront the fact that the legal profession is about service to all within Washington; that everyone deserves to have representation by the legal profession and in the legal profession. The Washington State Bar Association programs supported by the Foundation bring this vision into reality." — Brent J. Williams-Ruth
