A Celebration of Life honoring the Honorable Richard H. Breiner will be held on Friday, May 27, 2022 at 1:30 p.m. at the Marin Veterans’ Memorial Auditorium at the Marin County Civic Center. We all lost a simply remarkable and iconic leader, lawyer, and judge when Richard H. Breiner died on February 26, 2022, at his home in San Rafael. He was 87 years old.

It is an exciting time of the year for “new law” buffs. As always, California’s new laws are a mix of added protections for workers, consumers, citizens in general and the press. Some of these new laws may start trends across the country. What’s the saying? “As California goes, so goes the nation.”

This year, I was asked by a longtime contractor client if I would help him (now, her) obtain a name and gender change order. The name change was not just from Paul to Paula, but also a last name change, as Paula had been adopted and desired to have the born family last name instead, as well as a change of birth certificate in another state. I said yes, we would help.

Patrons are slowly returning to the Marin County Law Library after our reopening to the public in May 2021. At present, we require all patrons to wear masks but have mostly returned to normal operations. Two of the Library's major public programs continue on Zoom, rather than in person: Lawyers in the Library and First Thursdays at the Marin County Law Library.
