Carol Seubert Marx ’79 Elected OSBA President-Elect
Carol Seubert Marx ’79 became the Ohio State Bar Association’s president-elect at the Association’s Annual Convention in Dayton. Marx will take office as president of the OSBA on July 1, 2011.
“I am honored to have been elected by my peers,” Marx said. “As president, I will look for every opportunity to build relationships and cultivate leaders, to promote and defend the integrity of our profession and to address issues of concern to our members.”
Marx is a sole practitioner in Lancaster, where she concentrates in the areas of workers’ compensation, Social Security disability, estate planning, and probate matters.
Marx has a long record of giving back to her community. In the past, she served as president, vice president, and treasurer of the Fairfield Family Counseling Center in Lancaster, where, as president, she supervised the completion of two housing projects for the mentally disabled. She currently serves as secretary on the Board of Trustees of the Fairfield Medical Center, the largest hospital in Fairfield County. And earlier this year, she began her tenure as the board’s vice chair. Marx also finds time to volunteer her legal expertise at the Fairfield County Pro Bono Legal Clinic periodically, something she considers an “important service” lawyers ought to provide to their communities.
Her husband, Gregg Marx ’79, is the first assistant prosecutor for Fairfield County. They have two children, Nicole and Kyle. Read an April SideBar feature about Carol.
