and living, I’m thankful for my furry co-worker. Be safe.
As we're learning to live a new norm in so many ways, the Palm
Beach County Bar Association wants to stay connected and help
you through these uncertain times. Whether you're working
from your kitchen table, home office, helping your children with
school work, or taking care of elderly parents from the distance,
we're here for you! Stay connected by posting your story on our
Facebook and Twitter pages using #PBCBAStayWell or send your
