Editor's Introduction

By Robert Rosborough

“Change is the law of life.” - John F. Kennedy Happy Holidays! It’s hard to believe another MCBA holiday party has come and gone. Time sometimes passes swiftly and before you know it, your kids are far older than you ever imagined, you barely recognize that person in the mirror and the Legislature has completely rewritten the statute you’ve spent the last ten years interpreting.

President's Message

Thank you to the members of the Marin County Bar Association for allowing me the privilege of serving as your President. Susan Feder will take over the ceremonial gavel and will have a great year. Our Association continues to grow and thrive, with new members from diverse backgrounds bringing vibrancy to the organization. No doubt, there will be challenges in the future much as there have been in the past and I am confident we are well-positioned to face them.

We are no longer dog or cat owners: we are dog or cat parents! Long gone are the days of doghouses in the distant backyard. Our pets live inside with us, in extravagant surroundings, lavished with toys, ensembles for all seasons, and their own Christmas stockings hanging on the mantle. They have salon days, grocery shop with us, attend soccer games, and are now an integral part of our family. It should be no surprise that they now have trusts too.

Forrest Tucker, unlike so many of us in this beautiful county, was not happy to be here. He didn’t like his small cell at San Quentin Prison so he and two other convicts made a plan to relocate.
