AYLA Judicial Reception
On September 24, 2015 Nikki Maples and Todd Musick attended the Austin Young Lawyers Judicial Reception held at the Four Seasons Hotel and hosted by the Austin Bar Association. The turnout was impressive as the very young lawyers overlapped the more established young lawyers who are soon to exit AYLA. A large part of the chatter consisted of the surprisingly tasty appetizers and dessert, a topic not usually complimented at similar events. The room quieted as the Austin Bar recognized and honored a fellow young lawyer, Jessica Mangrum, for her efforts as a board member for Austin Young Lawyers Association. Everyone applauded her achievement and she beamed as she was being recognized. Afterwards, the judges and lawyers floated around the event exchanging handshakes and hugs during the annual “mingle with the judiciary” evening. It is always refreshing to spend a few minutes in a casual setting sharing casual conversation with the judiciary.
