A Message from Michael D. Schindler,

President, Parma Bar Association

Welcome to the Parma Bar Association’s website. It is an honor and a privilege to have been elected President of the bar for the 2016-2018 biennium. It has been, and continues to be, a pleasure to work with such dedicated attorneys involved with the Parma Bar Association. This year I hope to increase membership and member involvement, to broaden awareness, and to promote a service project for the membership.

This website was designed to help serve both the legal professional community and the community at large. On behalf of the Parma Bar Association, we hope this site provides you with helpful, relevant, educational information.

The Parma Bar Association was originally established on President Abraham Lincoln’s birthday on February 12, 1963. Our mission is to inform all citizens of their legal rights and responsibilities, improve principles of the legal profession, and provide continuing legal education. The Parma Bar also provides supplemental information to the public on retaining counsel.

The vision of the Parma Bar Association is that all people shall have access to and full benefit of the rule of law and the system of justice. Our goal is to assist members to provide excellent legal services to the community in an ethical, professional and civil manner by fostering the highest ideals of integrity and competence with the highest standards of conduct and civility.

Our members demonstrate their dedication and responsibility to the community by offering legal assistance holding only to the highest of standards. As a local practicing attorney, I have been privileged to personally associate myself with many members of the Parma Bar Association. These members are qualified, respected attorneys who view their professions as a necessary means to extend equality and fairness for the common good.

The Parma Bar Association has served the residents of the Parma Court District for 53 years. The Bar always welcomes suggestions and comments relating to the development and progression of the law.

Please return to this site regularly for updates. Your suggestions are encouraged and welcomed. If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.
