We always say how quickly time passes, whether it is how long we have been practicing lawyers or how fast our children grow, and my time as Chair of the Solo and Small Firm Section has truly flown by.
It has been a particularly busy year given the impending separation of the Sections from the State Bar of California, so that uncertainty has made it more exciting than usual. In thinking about our Section’s leadership, I want to specifically thank Cindy Elkins of our representative with the Council of Sections for her tireless efforts on our Section’s behalf through the separation. I could not have been an effective leader in other areas of our Section’s work had she not taken the laboring oar on our behalf with the Council of Sections. Thank you, Cindy.
