Coffee and breakfast at 9:30. It’s a chance to mingle and get to know one another before our meeting starts, so come early for some treats.


Guest speaker Diego Rodriquez

Diego Rodriguez was admitted to the Arizona Bar in 1995. He has extensive trial experience in both criminal and civil cases. He began his career as a prosecutor and then moved into civil law practice in 2000.

In November of 2018 Mr. Rodriguez was elected to the Arizona State House of Representatives for legislative district 27 – which covers, south Phoenix, Laveen and Guadalupe. He has been involved in criminal justice reform and will be speaking about the recreational marijuana initiative that is now out for signatures. Many legislators and those involved in criminal justice have serious problems with that initiative for several reasons so they are introducing an alternative. Come and learn what the problems are and decide what your position will be.
