Ana Escobar named 2012 President of Davidson County Democratic Women

Update: Escobar has resigned from the president-elect position of the Davidson County Democratic Women, to avoid the appearance of partisanship in her role as a member of the Judicial Commission. Lynda Jones, who nominated Escobar to the DCDW presidency, said Escobar "was a delight to have on our board for a brief 3 months. She will always remain well regarded."

Nashville attorney Ana Escobar has been named the 2012 President of the Davidson County Democratic Women.

Escobar has practiced criminal law in Nashville for over fifteen years. She started her career defending indigent citizens in the Office of the Public Defender and later became a prosecutor in the Office of the District Attorney, where she prosecuted mid-level drug organizations.

Escobar currently runs her own law firm - the Escobar Law Group - and is held in high regard by the local bar. In 2003, Escobar ranked second in a Nashville Bar Association rating of candidates for Davidson County General Sessions Judge.

Apart from her upcoming presidency of the DCDW, Escobar has held the following past and present community service roles:
  • Planning Commission for Davidson County, Tennessee, Commissioner
  • Tennessee Judicial Nominating Commission, Commission
  • Nashville Bar Association, Board of Directors
  • Nashville Bar Foundation, Fellow
  • Nashville Prevention Partnership, Board of Directors
  • Junior League of Nashville, Sustainer
  • Davidson County Election Commission, Commissioner
  • Nashville Bar Association, Chair of the Criminal Justice Committee
  • Hands on Nashville, Board of Directors
  • Advisory Council, El Protector
Escobar was raised in Nashville and is a graduate of St. Cecilia Academy (1988), Vanderbilt University (1992), and the George Washington University Law School (1995).
