The ADC is dedicated to your success!  We are here to provide you with educational resources and professional connections so that you will be successful in your practice.  The ADC is the premiere association for civil defense attorneys.  If you are not yet a member of the ADC, click here to join.  If you need more information about the benefits ADC membership can provide, please feel free to contact me directly.

     As a member of the ADC, you will be able to attend our regular MCLE webinars and educational events at a discount.  You will also be added to our ListServ, where members connect to share valuable information about expert witnesses, motions, and other cutting edge legal information.  Members also receive our regular Newsflashes which help ensure that you are kept apprised of recent legal developments.  You will also receive the Defense Comment magazine which is published three (3) times a year.  Members are also eligible to publish articles in the Defense Comment.  We also have a broad range of sub-law committees that allow you to meet other defense attorneys in your practice area to share ideas.  And, finally, while our in-person events have been deferred for the last few years during COVID restrictions, members can look forward to some of the most fun and beneficial networking opportunities very soon. 

     Membership in the ADC automatically makes you a member of the California Defense Counsel (CDC), the political arm of the ADC.  The ADC works with lobbyist Mike Belote, who provides ADC members with cutting-edge legislative updates.

     Our regular sponsors and vendors also provide our members with programs and tools they need to be successful. 

     Being a member of the ADC gives you an advantage.  We look forward to helping you succeed!
