Legal Professionals: Join Now

Join Our Extraordinary Partners Today!

CMBA is proud to serve as the go-to organization for all legal matters in Northeast Ohio. As COVID-19 continues to affect our lives and businesses, our members have been at the forefront of innovation. Together, we have built a virtual community, every bit was strong as when we were meeting regularly face to face. We welcome lawyers and non-lawyers alike to find their voice, to network and to contribute to a stronger legal community.

Starting with our REAL (Racial Equity And the Law) Talks and our 21-Day Racial Equity challenge, CMBA’s committed members have made us the leading voice for positive, permanent change to our justice system.
