In the 29 years that I have enjoyed the CCBA, a lot of things have changed. More judges, courts, court houses, lawyers. Clermont County has grown in nearly every way. Our association has always been a collegial group, welcoming to young attorneys, or law students, as I was, when I began an internship with the public defender’s office. In addition to willing mentors, I found numerous social activities to encourage assisimilation into the legal community, Softball at McCabe’s, dinner after County Court, Stumps Boast club, golf outings, Goldminer’s, Moonlight Chili to name a few. Indeed, to some extent, practicing in our county was (and remains) a social event, in and of itself. What a great way to begin a practice.
