Barristers:

Many years ago, a group of private criminal defense attorneys met over lunch to discuss issues relevant to the private defense bar and the need for a voice in court policy making. This informal gathering led to the formation of the Barristers. The Barristers meet monthly to discuss current issues in the courts, topics of interest, and for educational programs. Representatives of the Barristers attend court Criminal Justice Quarterly meetings and other meetings with the government sector to provide private sector input into proposed changes affecting the criminal courts. The Barristers is open to any Solano County attorney whose practice is majority criminal defense.
