Solo/Small Practice Division

by Debra L. Samuels

Debra L. Samuels is the 2019 Solo/Small Practice Division Co-Treasurer and the principal of Samuels Law P.C. in Sacramento, where she focuses her practice on residential real estate broker defense. She can be contacted at Samuels@Samuels-Law.com.

The Solo/Small Practice Division’s first MCLE event of the year was held on January 22, 2019, at the SCBA Event Center, featuring Judge Kevin R. Culhane and Larry Doyle, who explained the new Rules of Professional Conduct, “What you Need to Know to Stay in Compliance with Your Ethical Obligations.” Both Culhane and Doyle have been teaching legal ethics for many years and were able to provide attendees with a unique perspective on “old versus new,” explaining how the new rules diverge from the old rules, and how the new rules create brand new obligations for California’s lawyers.

The Solo/Small Practice Division of the SCBA was created in 2016 to address the unique needs of solo and small firm practitioners. The Division provides a forum for networking, educational opportunities, and events to promote the success of solo and small firm practitioners. The Division will offer three low-cost MCLE events with topics focusing on the success of solo and small firms, including a half-day bootcamp in May. In addition, the Division will hold several networking mixers so that members can get to know other solo/small firm attorneys and create referral sources, as well as brown bag ”Mastermind Workshops,” where members can share ideas and get their questions answered.

For more information regarding sponsorship opportunities, event details, or to share ideas for MCLE events or workshops, please e-mail Debra Samuels at Samuels@Samuels-Law.com.
