Gary Lesser

Convening virtually after Hurricane Ian postponed a September meeting, the Board of Governors received an update on a mentoring program for beginning lawyers and approved a handful of proposed rule amendments.

President Gary Lesser began the October 24 meeting expressing sorrow for storm victims and praising the many Bar members who rushed to their aid. The Young Lawyers Division deserves special praise, Lesser said, for raising donations, delivering relief supplies, and organizing and staffing legal hotlines.
