If you’re a member of the ADC, thank you for your membership!  And if you’re not a member and just visiting our website, we look forward to welcoming you as a member of the only organization in northern California dedicated to serving the interests of civil defense attorneys.

        This past year has been extremely difficult for all of us.  The pandemic and resulting shutdowns have affected everyone, including all those who have the privilege of practicing our great profession.  But a complete reopening is on the horizon.  And the ADC has never been more relevant.

        Membership in the ADC automatically makes you a member of the California Defense Counsel (CDC), the political arm of the ADC which represents our interests in Sacramento.  Membership keeps you up to date with changes in the laws that affect our practices every day.

        While we continue to present regular educational webinars to our members, we have scheduled our first in-person educational event for June 18 when our Annual Construction Seminar takes place in Pleasanton.  Plan on also joining us at our Summer Session at Squaw Creek near beautiful Lake Tahoe on August 27 and 28.  Our Annual Golf Tournament at Silverado Country Club in Napa Valley is set for September 28, and our year ends with our Annual Meeting at the St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco on December 9 and 10.  Mark these dates on your calendar and plan on attending!

        Thank you all and please don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or comments.  The ADC is here to serve you!
