President's Message

Editor's Introduction

I hope all of our readers had a joyous Thanksgiving although I certainly understand how hard it can be to feel grateful if you have suffered a loss from the fires. . . . Their effects will linger for years, even lifetimes for some. For those who have lost their homes, the road is just beginning and I hope that what we offer in this issue of the Marin Lawyer will help.
