Welcome to 2023! I hope all of you are faring well during this incredibly wet January. The beginning of a new year brings the promise of both change and renewal. For me, this new year marks the privilege of a year of service as President of the Marin County Bar Association. I am honored to be a part of this remarkable organization, and I look forward to a year of camaraderie, connection and great programming in the service of our mission.

According to the United States Office of Refugee Resettlement (“ORR”), since October of last year, at least 382 children have moved to Marin from ORR shelters all over the country. These children have come to live in Marin because they have parents or other family members or guardians living in the county. Our county’s lack of free or low-cost immigration legal service providers will leave the majority of these children without the help they need.
