The Defense Line: A Publication From The Maryland Defense Counsel, Inc.

President’s Message

Jennifer S. Lubinski, Esquire, Funk & Bolton, PAJ. Mark Coulson, Esquire, Miles & Stockbridge P.C.

Welcome back! I am honored to commemorate my 20th year at the Bar (and as an MDC member) by serving as your 2011–2012 President.

As we find ourselves yet again facing great economic uncertainty, it is MDC’s goal to continue to provide accessible and affordable professional enrichment through our upcoming educational programs and your forum, The Defense Line. As always, please let us know about your successes or issues you have come across in your practice that might be useful for your colleagues.

We will also no doubt face continuing efforts in Annapolis to erode our clients’ ability to defend themselves, and MDC stands ready to make sure our voice is heard by providing timely and comprehensive information to the General Assembly. To the extent you become aware of important issues for your clients or your practice, please let us know so that we can support you.
Similarly, to the extent those issues arise in the context of an appeal, MDC will continue its amicus support.

In addition to our usual array of events, a highlight of this year will be a repeat of last year’s Trial Academy. We will no doubt be in touch with many of you for ideas and faculty support. If there are any other particular educational programs that you think would be of interest to the Defense Bar, please do not hesitate to let us know.

Finally, I would like to thank our sponsors who make much of what we do possible. Please continue to patronize them and to make them aware that you are an MDC member.

Thank you for your continuing support of MDC.
