Judges, lawyers gather for Bench Bar Conference

Many members of the Macomb County Legal Community gathered recently to discuss trends in the practice of law, examine problems and discuss solutions as well as to continue and promote the tradition of civility in the profession. The annual Bench Bar Conference was held at the ConCorde Inn in Clinton Township, featuring a day of discussions and presentations. One of the highlights of the event was the delivery of the State of the Court address by Macomb County Circuit Court Chief Judge James Biernat Jr. (second row center).
