Kudos To Our Incredible Barristers

Doron EghbaliThis article is dedicated to the noble work of our invaluable Barristers’ Board of Governors (“BOG”). The profound work of the BOG positively affects lawyers, law students and laymen alike. To demonstrate the lofty work of our Barristers’ BOG, let us review only about one week of the BOG’s accomplishments.

March 7 – The monthly Roxbury Park Free Legal Clinic helps the public with general legal services. It is Co-Chaired by our superb President-Elect William Wenzel and Danielle Grabois.

March 7 & 8 – Brunch for Eight is a BHBA Barristers’ program in which eight law-school students are invited to the BHBA to help them ascertain the salience of involvement in a local Bar Association and the noble work BHBA performs for “young and newer” attorneys. Two such brunches were held in March with students attending from Loyola Law School on the 7th and UCLA on the 8th. This year’s Chairperson is our able Ariadne Giannis. On both days, dignitaries from the BHBA and the Bench joined Ariadne and the students.

March 10 – Our superb Co-Chairs of the Committee for the Arts, Dira Imam and Anastasia Alen held an art and music event at the legendary House of Blues. This program was held in their architecturally beautiful Foundation Room and consisted of high quality music and ethereal artifacts put together by the homeless.

March 13 & 14 – The Barristers superbly led by Yan Goldshteyn, Lauren Gabbaian and Liana Yoon proudly represented BHBA at the UCLA Entertainment Symposium.

March 14 – Our chef extraordinaire, LeRoy Williams, chaired Samoshel at the Santa Monica Shelter. LeRoy, along with Jeanine Percival Wright (Barristers’ Past President), Jeremiah Livesay and other selfless volunteers served around 60 homeless people with a St. Patrick’s themed menu.

March 15 – Danielle Grabois, our diligent Chair of the Bench Bar Bike Ride, facilitated a fun and non-strenuous bike ride along Hermosa and Manhattan Beach.

In addition, the Barristers put on an MCLE program about how to start a law firm and another “Power Lunch” program with an entertainment “Power Lawyer,” ably Co-Chaired by Brian Schaller and Yan Goldshteyn.

Barristers have been preparing for the annual “Vintage Bouquet,” set for April 26, 2015. It is being Co-Chaired this year by our very own Dira Imam and Danielle Grabois.

Our invaluable Megan Peitzke is preparing an MCLE program with 11 judges of the West District for May 2015 on “Do’s and Don’ts” of court conduct.

Furthermore Leigh Leshner, Nick Francescon and John Grimball are planning an all-day seminar on the nuts and bolts of entertainment law for June 2015.

Thank you so much BOG for your lofty work.

Barristers Annual VINTAGE BOUQUET™ Food & Wine Extravaganza – A Great Success!

The Beverly Hills Bar Association Barristers are continually impressed by Immediate Past President, Leigh Leshner and her dedicated committee who once again planned and hosting another greatly successful VINTAGE BOUQUET™ Food and Wine Extravaganza in April 2012!

Since its commencement in 1988, the VINTAGE BOUQUET™ has become one of the Beverly Hills Bar Association’s premiere events, featuring bites by several of L.A.’s top chefs and tastings by many of California’s premium wineries, along with entertaining live music and fun silent and live auctions. 

Most importantly, proceeds of the VINTAGE BOUQUET™ support charitable contributions made by the Beverly Hills Bar Foundation, including pro bono services, community outreach projects, legal education programs, and access to the justice system.

A sincere thank you to all who volunteered, attended, and donated for this year’s VINTAGE BOUQUET™, which may very well have been the most successful Extravaganza so far!  For more information on the event, please visit www.vintagebouquet.com.  Photos by Jamie Pham Photography.
