Message from the President

A Message from Our President Tyler Tomlinson, Esq., 

My family and I are deeply honored that I have the privilege of serving as the 84th president of the Bucks County Bar Association and we extend our heartfelt gratitude for the trust you have placed in me to lead this organization. The responsibility accompanying this role is humbling, and it’s a responsibility I don’t take



This year, myself, Jeremy Puglia, Melanie Wender, Stephanie Shortall, and the entire board of directors are excited to team up with our Executive Director, Heather Cevasco, and the incredible staff at BCBA to have a terrific year.


So, for the coming year, there are many things we hope to accomplish.  We’re all about serving our members and the broader legal community. Building upon our rich history of promoting justice and fostering professional growth, we aim to elevate our association to new heights.  We are one of the oldest Bar Associations in America, and we want to continue to improve it.


A key focus of my presidency will be enhancing professional development opportunities, particularly for our younger lawyers. As GE’s Jack Welch said:  “Before you are a leader success is all about growing yourself.  When you become a leader, success is about growing others.”  The board and I are committed to empowering the next generation of legal professionals within Bucks County.


Anticipating an exciting year, we have planned notable events, including the Opening of Assizes on February 8, the historic milestone of surpassing 1,000 BCBA members (history in the making!), The Foundation 20th Anniversary Gala on April 18th, the BCBF golf outing on June 10, and our Bench Bar at Camelback from September 19 to 21.


Your input is invaluable, and my door is always open. I welcome your ideas and suggestions.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions – my cell is (215) 370-6031.  With your support and collaboration, I’m confident that we’ll tackle challenges, grab opportunities and continue to uphold the values of excellence, integrity, and justice that define Bucks County’s legal community.


Again, I’m honored to serve as your President and thank you all for your commitment. Let’s embark on this journey together.  Thank you for the opportunity to serve this great Association and I look forward to seeing all of our members throughout the year. 



Tyler Tomlinson

Bucks County Bar Association President
