SIDEBAR FEATURE

MBA Welcomes its
New Executive Director,
Denise S. Vicario, Esq.
By Robert R. Watson, Jr., Esq.

T

hroughout the shutdown over the past few months,
your Montgomery Bar Association has managed to
continually supply its members and the community
with a number of positive advancements during what we all
can admit have been difficult times locally and nationally.
Perhaps the most optimistic among all of the MBA's initiatives
was President Kurtas' announcement
on July 6 that following an exhaustive
search, Denise S. Vicario, Esquire, has
accepted the role of our Association's new
Executive Director.
In addition to the formal news
release available on our website and
social media, it is certainly fitting for
the SIDEBAR to publish an article
welcoming Denise to her new position
within the organization. Many of us
know Denise because of her time as a
local lawyer and active bar leader, and
most recently as Chief Deputy Court
Administrator for our Court of Common
Pleas. This is a particularly exciting
article for the SIDEBAR because,
up until July 6, Denise served our
Committee as Vice-Chair and regular editor and contributor
to the magazine. Therefore, it is with real pleasure that I was
able to take up some of Denise's busy schedule recently to
report to our membership a little more about our new ED, her
background, and what her plans are for the MBA looking ahead.
Denise is a Philadelphia native, and her family moved to
Horsham while she was in elementary school. She attended
St. Joseph's University for college, where she majored in
international relations. After attending Widener University
School of Law, Denise initially worked in our County District
Attorney's office as well as with the District Courts, later
accepting an administrative position with the Superior Court

22 SIDEBAR

of California, Orange County. Denise briefly entered the
private law practice before returning to Montgomery County
to oversee criminal and special courts operations. In her role as
Chief Deputy Court Administrator for the Court of Common
Pleas, Denise oversaw the implementation of technology
improvements throughout the office's operations with an end
goal of improving access to justice for
all. Denise takes pride in assisting
Montgomery County's ability to remain
at the forefront of the use of legal
technologies to improve service to the
legal profession and the community at
large.
When asked how President Judge
Del Ricci reacted to her announcement
that she was accepting the position
as MBA Executive Director, Denise
reported that he provided great insight
from the moment she broke the news,
and Judge Del Ricci continues to be
most supportive of the MBA as well as
of her personally in her new professional
role. There is no doubt that this mutual
respect and cooperation will continue to
serve both Denise and our local Bar moving ahead.
Denise reports that she has always admired the Montgomery
Bar Assocation and in particular its work for the member
attorneys and the local community. Denise has been an ardent
MBA supporter, and she views serving the group as Executive
Director as a new and more creative extension of that work as
well as a fantastic professional opportunity. It was difficult for
her to leave her role with the Court, but Denise had the full
support of her colleagues behind her in making the transition.
She likes to leave everything a little better than when she
started, and Denise is confident that her stamp on the Court
Administrator's office was a positive one.
