University of Baltimore School of Law alumnus Barrett R. King, J.D. ’06, has been named president of the board of directors of the Women’s Law Center of Maryland. He succeeds Kelly Powers, J.D. ’06.
King is the first man to act as president of the board in the 45-year history of the Women’s Law Center.
“This position is an honor for me because so many friends, mentors, classmates and icons of the legal community held this position before me and ultimately believed I could be the right person, at this time, for the job,” King said in a news release announcing the law center’s new officers.”This presents an opportunity for the Women’s Law Center to show its members, clients and the public that women’s rights are not a women-only issue.”
King has been affiliated with the Women’s Law Center for more than 10 years, first as the co-founder of Students Supporting the Women’s Law Center at the UB School of Law and, starting in 2012, as a member of the center’s board. He has served as the chair of the board’s Judicial Selections Committee and, most recently, as vice president.
King practices law with King Hall LLC in Ellicott City, where he focuses on guardianship, estate planning and administration, estate and tax litigation, elder law and business law.
Powers is a principal in Miles & Stockbridge’s Family Law and Private Client Group. Her practice focuses on international child abduction matters, custody, child support and protection from domestic violence, among other areas.
Sandy Daniels is the new vice president of the Women’s Law Center board of directors and Gina Snee is the new treasurer. Snee received a bachelor’s degree in accounting from the University of Baltimore in 1995.
The new officers began two-year terms on July 1.
