President's Message

 Happy Thanksgiving!

This Thanksgiving holiday offers an opportunity to reflect on our many blessings and to be grateful for the people in our life. I am thankful for my family and to have my husband home from deployment after three years abroad. I’m thankful for friends who have been my strength when I needed it. I’m also thankful for the wonderful legal community we have here in Tarrant County and the positive contributions everyone has made to making our community stronger and better.

As you gather with your loved ones on Thanksgiving, remember our military men and women who are away from home, our men and women in blue and the countless healthcare professionals that are typically unable to spend the day with their loved ones because they are keeping us safe and healthy.

I will leave you with this quote from the late President Kennedy, “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words but to live by them.”

Happy Thanksgiving and God bless,

Lisa Grimaldi

FWPA President 2022
