This is an impressive group who bring to the DCJ many years of trial and defense experience and a wide range of substantive knowledge. The Board members are committed to delivering exceptional articles and have been working hard and planning ahead for upcoming editions later this year and in 2025. We are grateful to each of the Board members for agreeing to serve and are excited and honored to be able to work with such an outstanding and dedicated group of attorneys.
