On July 11, 2015, Stephens Friedland LLP founding partner and Orange County Bar Association President-Elect Todd G. Friedland spoke as a panelist for the “Allen E. Broussard Panel on Professionalism and Civility” at the Orange County Bar Association’s day-long Bridging the Gap program. The other panelists included Superior Court Presiding Judge Glenda Sanders and Orange County Bar Association Past-President Joseph L. Chairez. The panel discussed ethical dilemmas lawyers are likely to face, and expectations as to how lawyers should conduct themselves in the legal community. “Your reputation is important, it will follow you everywhere” stated Mr. Friedland. Each of the panel members emphasized the importance of acting appropriately no matter how heated litigation may become.

Bridging the Gap is a program hosted by the Orange County Bar Association for new admittees to the California Bar. Bridging the Gap helps new lawyers navigate the transition from law student to practicing lawyer. It offers such programs as “Making Your Way Through Court,” “Business Law,” and “Civil Law & Motion.” The Orange County Bar Association will offer the program again around February 2016.
