I hope that this first newsletter finds everyone staying as warm as possible and their first quarter as successful as ever.  Being this is the first newsletter of the new year I want to take the opportunity to give everyone a 'heads-up' about some of the things that will occur throughout the year.

Your bar association will be offering several CLE opportunities throughout this coming year at an extremely reasonable cost so keep your eyes open for announcements or feel free to email me or any of the executive committee members with questions about upcoming events.  The first CLE opportunity will be March 20th, 2015 and will be on Ohio's Sunshine Law.  The specifics and sign up information are listed below.


Also, we will have our quarterly luncheons and should have some interesting speakers lined up.  The fist quarterly lunch specifics are listed below and will start off with the traditional legislative review and what we will be seeing from the Ohio General Assembly in the year to come.  I know I will see many of you there as this is usually a well attended luncheon.  Do not wait to RSVP, it will fill up fast. 


Finally, it is never to early to start thinking about spring.  May 1st of course is Law Day and we will be having our law day luncheon on May 1st.  Mark your calendars now and more details will follow as we get closer to the date.  The speaker will be Ohio Supreme Court Justice Judi French and it should be very interesting. 


Well, that is all or now.  Keep your eyes peeled for announcements and please do not hesitate to contact me anyway you can (email, phone, smoke signal, telepathy) and I will do my best to get your answer to you. If you cannot reach me then get a hold of any of the executive committee members listed below.  Till the next newsletter, I wish you all well and a successful year.





The link below should have all the information that you need for the upcoming CLE  on March 20th, 2015.  It is pending approval of 3.0 General Hours and it ONLY COSTS $25.....THAT'S RIGHT $25 FOR 3.0 HOURS.   You cannot beat that so sign up today. If you have any problems let me know immediately. 


Registration and Information for Sunshine Law CLE







Mark your calendar for Friday April 3rd, 2015 from 11:30AM to 12:45PM at Santo Susso's on Route 18.   The speakers will be Mary Amos Augsburger and Todd Book from the Ohio State Bar Association.  They will be providing us a review of legislation that is pending down in Columbus.  This has traditionally been a very good presentation over the years.  Please RSVP to Mary Ann Lapina at (330) 725-9744 no later than March 27th.  The cost is $16.00 per attendee.  Hope to see you all there.





The members of the Medina County Bar Association's Certified Grievance Committee asked me to remind everyone that  Rule 1.4 of the Ohio Rules of Professional Conduct require that if you are not carrying professional liability insurance that you inform your clients and prospective clients in writing.  The client should also sign said notice.  The form for notice is provided in Rule 1.4 for everyone's convenience. While you are not required to carry professional liability insurance unless you are practicing in a legal professional association, corporation, legal clinic, limited liability company, or limited liability partnership your clients may assume that you have such coverage and the purpose of the rule is to let clients know if you actually do not carry the coverage.  If you have any further questions do not hesitate to contact me.





Very truly yours,
