    The American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) through its Foundation is proud to present “Civility Matters”, a program devoted to promoting one of its primary tenets: “To elevate the standards of integrity, honor and courtesy in the legal profession.”

    ABOTA was founded in Los Angeles in 1958. ABOTA’s founding members were concerned about two issues impacting the legal profession: 1) preserving the right to civil jury trials and 2) civility in the practice of law.

    Through ABOTA’s “Civility Matters” program, you will learn about real life experiences and thoughts from members of the judiciary and bar, as well as how critical professional and civil behavior is to the practice of law.

    Our presenters are:

    Judge John Evans, Superior Court Judge, Riverside County
    Catherine A. Gayer, Winet, Patrick, Gayer, Creighton & Hanes
    Steven C. Geeting, Geeting Law
    Jay S. Korn, Bonnie R. Moss & Associates
