REPRESENTING our LOCAL LEGAL COMMUNITY
PAABA provides Continuing Legal Education, networking opportunities, Associates’ Happy Hour, Friday evening Study Hall, and much more. We offer a number of committees and practice area sections to foster relationships between members. PAABA fosters a collegial and camaraderie-driven environment for attorneys in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties.
Members of professions relating to the practice of law are welcome to join PAABA and attend events at our special Associated Professionals rates. Paralegals, law practice administrators, court personnel, financial planners, expert witnesses, and more can find networking and professional education through PAABA.
Current law students and first-year practitioners are eligible to join PAABA at a reduced rate. Student members have many opportunities to meet practicing attorneys, serve on legal committees, and publish legal commentary in PAABAs blog.
Our Lawyer Referral Service provides low-cost consultations with experienced attorneys. Our Alternative Dispute Resolution is a panel of attorneys who can mediate individual, business, family or consumer disputes. Our Fee Arbitration Service was established to resolve fee disputes between attorneys and clients. PAABA also offers Community Law Night and participates in local Lawyers in the Library programs.
