President's Message
Giving and Getting Thanks
By J. Timothy Nardell
In September, I interviewed Laura McMahon about pro bono volunteer opportunities with Legal Aid of Marin. This month, I’d like to highlight two excellent volunteer opportunities within our own bar association, give thanks to our generous volunteers, and encourage all members to join in these efforts – it’s as easy as picking up the phone or signing up online.  More >
