The Contra Costa Superior Court held a reception to thank the hundreds of volunteers from the legal and professional community who contributed their time and talent to support the court. I was one of the volunteers so honored.
The Presiding Judge, the Honorable Barry Goode said, “There have been so many setbacks as our budget has been cut over the past five years, we simply could not function as well as we do without you. Your efforts as mediators, arbitrators, settlement mentors, temporary judges, discovery facilitators, docents, clerks and interns, CASA and clinic Volunteers have made all the difference. We thank you on behalf of the parties with cases before the court, and the public whose access to their justice system you have supported.”
I’m proud to be associated with this large group who has given of their time and talents to improve access to justice.
