Amberg Co-Authors Annual ‘Los Angeles Lawyer’ Ethics Roundup
March 13, 2012
Santa Monica Partner John W. Amberg co-authored an article for the March issue of Los Angeles Lawyer
magazine that surveys continuing developments in California legal ethics in 2011, notwithstanding severe budget cuts to the state’s judicial system. Last year, California’s trial courts saw their budgets reduced by $350 million, leading to layoffs and dark courtrooms, and further cuts are expected in 2012.
