Derek D. Lick: Nomination by Board of Governors

I humbly ask for your vote for President-Elect of the Bar Association, as I remain committed to serving you and the profession by supporting this critical organization.

This past year I have been honored to serve as Vice President of the Bar, and I’ve greatly enjoyed getting to talk with many of you about the state of our profession and how the Bar can better help all of us. I would like to continue those discussions and work toward addressing your concerns. For example, I’ve heard about the difficulty in recruiting new attorneys and other professional staff to our State to help us support our clients’ needs. I’ve heard about the necessity of supporting the Courts to secure sufficient resources to ensure speedy access to justice. I’ve also heard about fostering fellowship and civility among the Bar members in the age of remote work and Webex court proceedings. These issues deserve our attention.

Derek D. Lick

For more than a decade I have volunteered for the Bar Association’s Committee on Cooperation with the Courts, which is charged with fostering communication and cooperation between the bench and the bar. In that role, I have witnessed first-hand the pressing issues facing both those of us who advocate for our clients before the Courts and those in the Judicial Branch who must ultimately make the tough decisions in litigated matters. Additionally, I serve on the New Hampshire Supreme Court’s Advisory Committee on the Rules, having first been appointed by the Bar and then by the New Hampshire Supreme Court. There I have attempted to provide helpful input on rules that govern our practice, including expanding IOLTA account access to innovative “sweep” accounts that allow attorneys and their firms to leverage additional federal deposit insurance.

I am a director and shareholder of Orr & Reno, P.A. in Concord, where I practice in litigation, focusing of late mostly on land use and planning, construction and real estate disputes, and commercial litigation. Outside of work, I serve as the Moderator for the Town of Sutton and for the Kearsarge Regional School District in the Lake Sunapee/Kearsarge area of the State. I also serve as Chair of the Sutton Zoning Board, as a member of the Board of Trustees of my local bank, Sugar River Bank, and as a member of the Board of the Concord-Lake Sunapee Rail Trail and Plan NH. Previously, I served on the Board of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen and on the Kearsarge Area Council on Aging, the non-profit organization that operates a senior center serving nine towns in the Mt. Kearsarge area.

I reside in Sutton with my wife, Debbie, and my daughter, Sophie, with my three older children attending or having just graduated college.

John M. (Jake) Crabbs : Nomination by Petition for a Two-Year Term
Carroll County Governor

One summer day in my youth, my parents—both lawyers—dragged me and my sisters to a picnic hosted by their County Bar Association. The only thing that I really remember was that a popular attorney (who later became an unpopular judge) performed a magic routine for the children. It is my earliest memory of sleight of hand, but the picnic left an impression for another reason. Even at that age, I understood that the work of lawyers was adversarial. Still, the members of the Bar could come together and genuinely enjoy each other’s company. That realization stuck with me.

Many years later—after I’d played some tournament croquet, circumnavigated the globe, and taught English in the Far East—I moved to Chicago to attend law school. My plan was to get my degree and get out. But after I graduated, I secured a series of judicial clerkships with trial and appellate judges, as well as an adjunct professorship at my alma mater. My wife—from Bartlett—patiently stayed in the big city with me, all the while extolling the virtues of Northern New Hampshire. Eventually, she prevailed, and we left the City of Broad Shoulders for the Mount Washington Valley. As ever, my wife was right.

John M. (Jake) Crabbs

In the years since I moved to Carroll County and joined Cooper Cargill Chant, I have been blessed with the opportunity to give back to the community in a number of ways. I have taken on several pro bono and court-appointed matters. I also serve as school board moderator for my town and as a member of my local library’s board of directors. I look forward to serving the attorneys practicing in Carroll County by doing my part to help the NHBA achieve its mission to improve the administration of justice, to safeguard the professional interests of its members, and to encourage cordial relations among members of the Bar. I thank you for your vote.

Associate, Cooper Cargill Chant, PA; J.D. The John Marshall Law School (now UIC Law School), Summa Cum Laude 2016; B.A. St. John’s College, Annapolis; admitted to N.H. Bar, 2022; admitted to Illinois Bar, 2016; member, NHBA New Lawyers Committee; member, Pope Memorial Library Board of Directors, school board moderator, Eaton, New Hampshire.
