Editor’s Message

Introducing … 

Betsy S. Kimball, Co-Editor-in-Chief

For the past four years, the March/April issue of Sacramento Lawyer has focused on lawyers who do interesting, good, unique, etc. things. This year’s March/April issue all but announced itself to us after I counted the number of recently-appointed judges here in Sacramento (7). Voilà, this issue’s cover story, Lawyers Who Have Become Judges – Introducing Sacramento’s New Judges. The help and cooperation of about 10 people was necessary to get this story done, and only through the good humor of the participants – and despite the weather – did the photo shoot happen. Special thanks to Baliff Oscar for keeping photographer Mark Long’s equipment from blowing off the 6th floor “terrace” of the courthouse.    

I have another introduction to make. I have been Editor now for five years, and it is (past) time to add a Co-Editor. Ellen Arabian-Lee thus joins me as Co-Editor. Ellen is no stranger to these pages or this legal community. Better still, she is active in legal publications. While earning her law degree at Santa Clara, Ellen was an editor of the law school’s Computer and High Technology Law Journal. After joining a large law firm, Ellen started and published her law firm’s monthly newsletter which was circulated to clients and other lawyers. While on the Board of Women Lawyers of Sacramento, she published its monthly newsletter for many years. She is currently the Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Defense Comment magazine, published by the Association of Defense Counsel of Northern California and Nevada, where she also serves on the Board as the Secretary/Treasurer.  

After working in law firms for over 23 years, Ellen started Arabian-Lee Law Corporation five years ago. She handles employment law matters and provides regulatory compliance services and on-site seminars for management teams. Ellen also defends personal injury actions and business litigation disputes. She is “AV” rated by Martindale-Hubbell and has been recognized in publications such as Sacramento Magazine. 

Ellen also has a busy family life, with a 9-year old daughter and son in pre-med at UC Davis, plus two stepsons. Ellen and her husband live in Folsom, and her office is in Roseville.
