Criminal Committee


The goal of the committee is to facilitate interaction and promote goodwill among members of the OCBA who practice in the area of criminal law. Each year, the Committee undertakes a number of projects and activities that are designed to be of benefit to criminal law practitioners. The three principal projects and activities of the Committee are (1) to prepare and maintain a directory of the judges of the criminal law bench in Orange County, (2) to sponsor continuing legal education seminars, and (3) to present the Gary L. Formet, Sr. Award. The Criminal Law Committee has a diverse membership that includes judges, public defenders, private defense lawyers, and prosecutors. We are always looking for new members.
