Covington, Washington (August 16, 2016) – The Washington State Bar Association invites esteemed Auburn defense attorney Kim E. Hunter to speak at the Criminal Law Section Member Benefit CLE in Spokane. The event was held last June 4, 2016 at the Gonzaga University School of Law. The Criminal Law Section Member Benefit: Marijuana Law Update, Fact Patterns and No-contact Orders seminar gave those who attended a chance to gain continuing legal education credits for Ethics (07.5) and Legal Procedure (1.25).
The Criminal Law Section tackled marijuana law including an overview of the new bills taking effect in 2015 and 2016. New changes that have been discussed will no doubt affect possession, growth and use of the substance. Some issues regarding ethics were also talked over, particularly those about procedures in the disciplinary process and limits on the rights and privileges of respondents. To wrap up the seminar, the last topic to be talked about was domestic violence. Which no-contact orders to use, when to use them, and why were the main points during the talk.
The Washington State Bar Association made sure to only invite speakers renowned in their respective areas of practice to serve as faculty. Among those who were present in the seminar are C. Dale Slack, Columbia County Prosecuting Attorney from Dayton, Hugh Birgeneheier of the Pierce County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office in Tacoma and Auburn domestic violence attorney Kim Hunter from the Law Offices of Kim. E. Hunter.
Ms. Hunter was honored to have been approached by the WSBA for this opportunity and had this to say: “Everyone deserves a fair trial – and each person deserves “their bite of the apple” in a court. DV is a serious issue in today’s environment and one role of defense attorneys, in my opinion, is to assist the persons involved to get appropriate treatment and help.”
