Bench Bar is Back


Members of Macomb County’s legal community gathered Feb. 24 at the county courthouse to mark the return of the Bench Bar conference. The daylong event, organized by the Macomb County Bar Association, attracted attorneys and judges from across the county as they held face-to-face conversations and discussed issues involving practice and procedure as well as changes that have occurred as a result of the pandemic. Those on hand for the conference held at Macomb Community College’s University Center in Clinton Township included (l-r): Erin Freers, MCBA director: Carl Marlinga, former Macomb County Circuit Court Judge; Aaron Hall, chair of the MCBA Young Lawyer’s Section; Lori Smith, MCBA president; Ryan Zemie, MCBA president-elect; 41B District Court Judges Sebastian Lucido and Carie Fuca; Frank Briguglio, MCBA immediate past president’ 37th District Court Judge John Chmura; 40th District Court Judge Joseph Oster; 39th District Court Judge Joseph Boedeker; and Dana Freers, MCBA secretary.
