For those of you who ask, "Why should I join the Criminal Courts Bar Association?" Please consider the words of our past president, David R. Evans:

"Each weekday morning in the courtrooms of this County, men and women of extraordinary courage and dedication rise on behalf of the accused and challenge the representatives of the most powerful nation in the world to prove their case. The work of those criminal defense attorneys is the reason for being of the Criminal Courts Bar Association. Outside those courtrooms, the Criminal Courts Bar Association is their voice. It functions as lobbyist, educator, and cheerleader. Its leaders--its officers and members of the board--are the leaders of the criminal defense bar in the County of Los Angeles. They include the Los Angeles County Public Defender, the Los Angeles County Alternate Public Defender, the President of California Attorneys of the Criminal Justice, partners from large downtown law firms, sole practitioners, white collar crimes specialist, DUI specialists, and death penalty specialists. They give of their time and money because of their deep shared concern for the rights of the accused and the well being of their advocates. On the second Tuesday of each month, they meet to discuss the pressing issues of the day, to break bread, and to hear talks by the luminaries of criminal practice."
