Since 1919, the Dutchess County Bar Association has worked to serve our membership and the community at large, promoting access to and understanding of the law.

The Dutchess County Bar Association has grown into a multi-faceted professional organization, serving attorneys from Dutchess County, the Hudson Valley, and beyond. Our diverse membership of approximately 500 attorneys has helped to make the DCBA a vital organization whose service to the community is a model for other Associations across the state.
