Melvin White, a partner at McDermott Will & Emery, took the reins of the D.C. Bar presidency this June. A corporate and trial attorney, White has been practicing in Washington, D.C., for nearly 20 years and has been active in bar administration since 2000, when he was elected to the D.C. Board of Governors. White is also making history by being the first openly gay president of the D.C. Bar. He spoke with Legal Times reporter Attila Berry earlier this month about his goals as president.
