Mooney Law is proud to announce that Attorney Roberto D. Ugarte has been named to the Pennsylvania Bar Associations’ Bar Leadership Institute in the Class of 2020-2021. In this role, Attorney Ugarte will assist in planning and attending networking events, assist with mock trial programs, and serve as a mentor for law students and young attorneys as they transition to the practice of law. He was one of 18 attorneys in Pennsylvania selected to the Bar Leadership Institute.
The Bar Leadership Institute was created in 1995-96 to strengthen the Pennsylvania Bar Associations’ efforts to recruit and develop leaders of the association who can advance its mission to promote justice and professional excellence. Selection to the institute is based on leadership abilities demonstrated by attorneys who are under age 40 or have practiced five years or less.

His growth in these few years since joining our firm has been phenomenal. He has excelled for our clients and that is evidenced by outstanding client satisfaction with his representation. Mooney Law is very proud of this appointment, but not surprised. His leadership qualities are clear to us and he will provide effective and eager leadership to the Bar Leadership Institute. We can’t be more proud of Roberto. Mark A. Buterbaugh, Managing Partner of Mooney Law
