The Bar is Open

Conversation with Wiley S. Boston, President of the Orange County Bar Association

Wiley Boston is the 2016-2017 President of the Orange County Bar Association and is a Partner with the Holland & Knight Law Firm. He  visited with Chief Judge Lauten and discussed everything from what life was like as a lawyer 20 years ago (when email wasn’t a common tool) to the efforts of the OCBA, a 3,500-member voluntary organization founded in 1933.   They talked about the overwhelming response received from attorneys to assist victims with legal issues associated with the Pulse Nightclub Shooting.  They discussed the valuable legal and community services offered through the Bar, including the mandatory pro bono participation.  They also discussed advice for young lawyers and future challenges of the association.

Be sure to listen to the end to find out if the Bar President supports Duke (his law degree alma mater) or Florida State University (undergraduate) on the hardcourt.  Note:  Judge Lauten’s son was a Blue Devil.
