Last week, several Barristers members met for a bike ride in the South Bay. Thirteen and and a half miles later we were back at Good Stuff Restaurant, hungry for a terrific brunch. Thanks to Brian Smith for organizing, and can't wait for the next program in July!
This weekend's trip Samoshel was another success, with the Barristers cooking up a bunch of yummy BBQ burgers that everyone loved. Next month sushi?
Remember, BHBA Barristers head to Samoshel Homeless Shelter in Santa Monica the 2nd Saturday of every month to help prepare food and serve a meal to about 60 of the City's homeless. The next trip will be on May 11, 3-5pm. Join us for a fun, easy and very rewarding experience you won't forget!
The Beverly Hills Bar Association Barristers proudly hosted their popular New Admittees Reception on March 14, 2013, garnering over 150 attendees.
Bar Leaders and Barristers of the BHBA warmly welcomed those newly admitted to the profession at the Beverly Hills Bar Association’s offices in the Rolex Building on Wilshire Boulevard.
The Honorable Judge John Segal addressed the attendees about the importance of community involvement and building lasting relationships in the legal profession, reinforcing some of the core values of the Beverly Hills Bar Association.
Bar Officers, Board of Governors Members and other Bar Leaders and Bar Staff were all present to welcome the New Admittees.
Guests mingled and networked with fellow constituents as they snacked on delicious hors d'oeuvres at the reception.
The Barristers would like to thank all those who attended as well as Lexis-Nexis, our generous sponsor, who contributed to the success of our event.
If you missed the New Admittees Reception, or even if you attended, but would like to learn more about what the Bar Association can do for you, please join us for our upcoming “Bar Camp.” More information can be found on our website at www.bhba.org.
Join us this Saturday, December 1st, for the Barristers Monthly Roxbury Park Free Legal Clinic.
Volunteer attorneys provide guidance to the public on various legal issues and basic legal rights in the areas of consumer law, landlord-tenant, small claims, wills and trusts, business disputes and other related legal issues.
The clinic is held at the Roxbury Park Community Center, located at 471 S. Roxbury Drive (Olympic Blvd and Roxbury Drive) in Beverly Hills.
Roxbury Park Free Legal Clinic is a community service program of the Beverly Hills Bar Association, 9420 Wilshire Boulevard, 2nd Floor, Beverly Hills, CA 90212.
In 1958 President Dwight Eisenhower established Law Day as “a day of national dedication to the principle of government under law.” Commemorated annually since that date, Law Day programs are conducted throughout the country by bar associations, courts, schools, and civic groups.
In celebration of the 55th annual Law Day, the Beverly Hills Bar Association Barristers hosted a Law Day Event, with very special guest speaker, Honorable Lee Smalley Edmon. In celebration of Law Day, the Barristers collaborated with LexisNexis in offering free MCLE for attendance at Judge Edmon's discussion on the California State Budget Crisis.
During the Law Day presentation, Judge Edmon offered insight into the the state budget situation, the two-part plan proposed by the Administrative Office, the judicial Budget Working Group’s approach, and the importance of adequate response to the budget crisis to protect access to justice in California.

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.
We're headed back to Samoshel Homeless Shelter in Santa Monica this Saturday to help prepare food and serve a meal to about 60 of the City's homeless! If you've never been before, come join us! If you have, you know it's fun, easy and very rewarding!
Barristers Jeanine Percival Wright, Anton Labrentz and Nick Blesich will plan the meal and buy the food – you just have to show up at 3:00 pm to help us cook and serve!
What: BHBA Barristers Community Outreach Event - Give back to your community and network with other young like-minded professionals!
When: This Saturday, May 12th from 3:00-5:00 pm (you still get your Saturday night!). We start cooking at 3:00 pm and start serving dinner at 4:30 pm or so.
Where: Samoshel Homeless Shelter - 505 Olympic Blvd in Santa Monica, CA 90401.
Why: It's a great opportunity to get a little perspective, develop a connection with the community and make a real difference!
Parking: Pull into the lot out front (we squeeze in as many as possible) or take metered parking on the street (but read the signs!).
Our group usually feeds 50-60 people for about $150. If you can throw in a couple of bucks to help offset the cost of the food, that would be fantastic. But even if you can't, still come and help out. We’ll be really glad you did! And so will you!
