Presiding Judge Steinberg to Address Family Law Section of Pasadena Bar Association


Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) December 8, 2011 - The presiding judge of the family court in Los Angeles, Judge Marjorie Steinberg, will be the Pasadena Bar Association's Family Law section's last guest speaker for the year.

Judge Steinberg will be speaking at 12pm at the Noor Restaurant, located at 260 East Colorado Blvd, Suite A209, Pasadena, CA 91101, on December 14, 2011.  Judge Steinberg recently announced her retirement effective at the end of 2011.

She is expected to discuss the new developments in family law and the courts.  Part of Judge Steinberg's presentation will address the ongoing challenges related to the court's budget cuts.  She will also discuss the implementation of new law related to Family Code § 217.  In addition, it is expected that Judge Steinberg will discuss the new judicial assignments at the Los Angeles Superior Court for the year 2012.

According to Donald P. Schweitzer, Program Chair of the Pasadena Bar Association, "We really appreciate that Judge Steinberg will be our guest speaker during her last month on the bench.  Judge Steinberg has been generous to our association during the past year, as she has spoken at three prior events."

Judge Steinberg has been a member of the California State Bar since December 1975.  She has served on the bench since 2001, spending the last several years as the supervising judge in family law where she oversees 45 family law judges and commissioners who preside over family law cases.  Judge Steinberg is considered by many to have been on the front line of one of Los Angeles' toughest judicial areas.  A supporter of the family court system, Judge Steinberg has encouraged the collaborative dissolution system in the Los Angeles courts as a means of diffusing the tension in divorce cases.

The Pasadena Bar Association believes Judge Steinberg's presentation to be very informative toward the practice of family law in 2012 and strongly encourages all family law attorneys practicing in Pasadena to attend this event, to demonstrate their gratitude to Judge Steinberg for her years of service.
