On July 29, the YLD Litigation Committee hosted guest speaker Judge Dax Lopez, State Court of DeKalb County, to a packed house of young litigators at the offices of Thompson Hine in Atlanta. Judge Lopez, a 14-year member of the bar and a nearly six-year member of the bench, spoke to the committee on his experiences both behind the bar and on the bench. Judge Lopez reminded young lawyers that professionalism is one of the most important aspects of a lawyer’s role.
On September 1, the Litigation Committee kicked off the program year with its annual College Football Kickoff Happy Hour, sponsored by Ricoh, where young lawyers gathered to debate and advocate for their respective college football teams’ success this season. The Litigation Committee looks forward to hosting speakers Lance Cooper and Julie Bracker this fall at its regular luncheons. The Committee is also in the planning stages of its annual Clerk’s Luncheon which celebrates the Clerks of Court in the metro Atlanta area.
Litigation Committee meetings are open to anyone and always informative. If you are interested in joining the litigation committee, please contact Jake Evans at Jake.Evans@thompsonhine.com or Megan Pearson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
