You might expect that your Marin County civil case will take the same course as your Sonoma lawsuits, but you’d be wrong. Don’t be caught flat-footed, or worse! The rules of civil litigation in Marin are, in
many important ways, different.

Get the information you need from the people who know it best: a Marin County Superior Court judge and an experienced Marin County civil litigator. A “Q & A” session will follow the program.

Honorable Roy O. Chernus
