The Prince George’s County Bar Association held their annual meeting last Tuesday. In addition to a meeting, the event also included a seminar, dinner, an award ceremony and elections.
The seminar was led by various Maryland lawyers including principal Steven B. Vinick. It focused on tort law, and covered common issues such as deposition strategies and objections.
Later that night, Vinick received the President’s Award for his contributions to tort law. His best piece of advice to young lawyers and paralegals, was, “get involved… and most importantly, make a difference.”
A big night for Vinick, he was also reelected to the board of directors. There he will join principal Jerry Miller, who was elected to serve his first term on the board.
The annual meeting was held in honor of the honorable C. Philip Nichols Jr. of the circuit court, and the honorable G. Richard Collins of the district court. Judge Nichols just celebrated his 70th birthday and plans to retire this year. Judge Collins retired five weeks ago.
Congratulations to both judge Nichols Jr. and judge Collins, for their service to justice and the legal community, we wish you both a happy retirement. Congratulations to Steven for earning the president’s award and your reelection to the board of directors. And congratulations to Jerry, on your election to the board of directors, we know you and Steven will do great things for the bar association and Prince George’s County.
