You are hereby cordially invited to join or renew your membership in the Criminal Courts
Bar Association.

The first meeting of the Criminal Courts Bar Association took place in 1954 at the old
Levy’s Restaurant located on Spring Street in downtown Los Angeles. Among the founders and
active practitioners who helped form our organization were Al Matthews, Abbot Bernay, Max
Solomon, John Marshall, Forrest Appell, Dick Erwin, Harold Ackerman, Joe Rosen, Maury
Lavine, and Al Garber. Jerry Giesler actively participated in the organization in its initial stages
and he was the only president to serve two terms.

The Articles of Incorporation state that “the specific and primary purpose of this
corporation is to form a professional association of attorneys actively engaged in the practice of
law who are dedicated to upholding and improving the standards for the administration of
justice.”

Quoting our revered past president, James G. Cooney, “since the beginning that statement
of purpose has been and is the reason for our existence. OUR ASSOCIATION WILL GROW IN
SIZE, STRENGTH, AND RESPECT ONLY TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY THE
FORCE, VIGOR, AND DILIGENCE GENERATED BY THE MEMBERSHIP.”
