Event Tickets

Upcoming CCBA Monthly Dinner meetings ---
mark your calendars. It's going to be hot.

• July and August 2017 we will not have meetings - "summer vacation."

• September 12th - (day after my birthday) our guest speaker will be attorney / author Edward Rucker. Ed is best known for his successful defense of former nightclub/restaurant owner Eddie Nash in the 1981 "Wonderland Murder" case. He is also the author of legal thriller "The Inevitable Witness." This is sure to be an exciting evening.

• October 10th - we will hear from Los Angeles County Chief Probation Officer Terry McDonald who will speak about changes in her department and practical advice we should provide to our clients to better the relationship between probationer / probation officer and avoid violations. Ms McDonald last spoke to us as the Assistant Sheriff of LA County and now she heads a huge department. A great speaker and an insightful and honest public servant. I look forward to this event.

• November 14th - since we're on a roll, why not have Sheriff Jim McDonnell speak to us. Well he has confirmed and he will be joining us speaking about the state of his department and the upcoming improvements to the jail system. Need I mention that this event will be huge. I am very honored that the Sheriff agreed to come and speak to us and that we will extend to him the utmost in respect and courtesy.

• Finally, in my final night as President of CCBA, December 5, 2017, will be Judges Night. We can begin to contact Judges and lock in their calendars. Judges dine as our guests. Our speakers for the evening will be Supervising Judge Scott Gordon and Assistant Supervising Judge Sam Ohta. Be sure to spread the word.

Sincerely, your 2017 CCBA President-
Evan Freed

Message From the President

Evan P. Freed

Dear Friends,

I want to begin by thanking 2016 President Louis Sepe for his outstanding contributions and hard work during his year of Presidency and, of course, I thank all Past Presidents for their guidance over the years.

Happy 2017 to our returning and new members, and welcome to what I envision will be another great year for the Criminal Courts Bar Association.

Our organization's success would be impossible without the support of our members, fantastic and generous sponsors, and our elected Officers and Board of Directors. I want to take this opportunity to thank you and recognize all of you for helping to carry us into our 64th year.

I hope you are as excited as I am about 2017. We are planning relevant and interesting MCLE accredited dinner meetings and events and I ask for your involvement and attendance. Bring a friend, family member or colleague to our events. Encourage others to become CCBA members and to join us as sponsors. We have an open door policy to all members of the criminal law community including defense attorneys, prosecutors, judges, private investigators and others, whether just beginning, active or retired. The ability to meet, greet and network cannot be overstated.

I am very honored to serve as CCBA’s President during our 64th Year. Please feel free to reach out to me at any time if you have any question or comments.

Evan P Freed
