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's Barristers, the “newer” attorneys, represent dedication, enthusiasm, the desire to help others and to make a difference. The Lawrence J. Blake Award, first given in 1985, was established to help foster greater awareness and recognition of Barristers activities and accomplishments.
This year, the Beverly Hills Bar Association's Barristers are proud to acknowledged and honor two of its Barristers Board of Governors who have co-chaired the Roxbury Park Legal Clinic since 2011 — Brian Smith and Anton Labrentz. They, and the team of volunteer attorneys they have recruited and developed, show up faithfully on the first Saturday of each month ready to tackle a diversity of requests for legal assistance from the public.
Brian and Anton have also increased the awareness and outreach of the Roxbury Park Legal Clinic. Typically, there is a line at the door before the Clinic opens. People hear about the Clinic, visit the clinic then recommend it to friends, come back with other questions and talk about the great service being provided.
Brian Smith practices real estate and environmental law with the Law Offices of Thomas J. Smith in Encino. He is a graduate of University of Notre Dame and received his J.D. from Southwestern University School of Law.
Anton Labrentz is a criminal defense attorney, with a focus on DUIs and driving-related cases, at the Law Offices of Mark Rosenfeld. Anton is a graduate of the University of California Santa Barbara and received his J.D. from Golden Gate University School of Law.
Congratulations Brian and Anton!
Marc Steanberg, Jaison T. Benjamin, Christopher A. Murphy, Theodore A. Russell, Jonathan H. Anschell, David Daniels, Lisa C. Jochums, Hernan Vera, and Zachary S. McGee
In a collaborative effort, the BHBA and Public Counsel were pleased to have offered this unique opportunity to hear prominent entertainment legal insiders offering their candid perspectives on drafting and litigating entertainment contracts. As part of this event, attendees were offered the chance to sign up for a meaningful and discrete pro bono matter that allow them to put into practice some of the important pointers given in the presentation. Those who signed up for the pro bono experience received their MCLE credit for free. Another similar opportunity will be offered soon!
Barristers Jeanine Percival-Wright, Doron Eghbali, Anton Labrentz, Yan Goldshteyn and recent law school graduate Rachael Skura participated in this year’s Tolerance Through Education program where members of the Beverly Hills Bar Association visit a local LA-area school to teach 2nd and 3rd graders through a series of games, skits and song about respecting each other’s differences and understanding that we’re really all special in our own way.
This year Barristers taught over 60 students at Overland Elementary School in West Los Angeles on Friday, September 28, 2012. If you’re interested in participating in this fun and rewarding program next year, you can reach the program chair, Doron Eghbali, at DoronEghbali@LawAdvocateGroup.com.
