Carol Seubert Marx named president-elect of OSBF
Columbus OH (Jan. 6, 2017)— Carol Seubert Marx begins her one-year term as president-elect of the Ohio State Bar Foundation (OSBF) before taking the helm as president in 2018. She will help OSBF President Andrew Storar lead an accomplished group of more than 1,000 legal professionals who are committed to promoting public understanding of the law and making improvements in the justice system.
As an OSBF Distinguished Life Fellow, Marx would like others to know, “Their involvement with the OSBF can extend the reach and meaning of their chosen profession, enhance their professional and personal lives and expand their opportunities to connect with like-minded lawyers and organizations.”
Marx is a sole practitioner in Lancaster, where she concentrates in the areas of workers’ compensation, Social Security disability, estate planning and probate matters.
With a strong commitment to her community, she currently serves as a member of the board of trustees and past chair of the Fairfield Medical Center, Fairfield’s largest hospital. She is a past president and former trustee of Meals on Wheels Older Adult Alternatives of Fairfield County Inc, where she chaired the successful undertaking of the first Fairfield County Senior Services Levy campaign. She has also served as president, vice president and treasurer of the Fairfield Family Counseling Center.
“I have always felt very strongly about giving back: whether as a girl scout when I was a child, or in high school when I coordinated my neighborhood’s annual St. Jude Children’s Hospital fund drive,” said Marx. “My hope is that I leave each in a better place as a result of my involvement.”
In addition to helping her community, Marx donates her time to bettering her profession as well. She has completed eight years of involvement in the governance of the Ohio State Bar Association where she served as a member of the Council of Delegates, a member of the Board of Governors, President-Elect, President and Past President.
Marx received her undergraduate degree from the University of Toledo and her law degree from The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law.
