Criminal defense and personal injury firm, Emerald City Law Group,  is hosting a weekly happy hour through the end of the summer (and once a month in the school year too).

If you’re interested, the next happy hour will be from 5-7 p.m. on Wednesday, August 6, 2014 at Tavern Law. Wine and beer will be hosted up to the first $150. This week the co-founder of Emerald City Law Group, Stryder Wegener, will be joining us. He’s a Seattle native and has a ton of experiences to share with us. Make sure you are there by 5:30 p.m. because at that time he’s going take 5-10 minutes and give us his best tips and tricks for networking success.

But that’s not all. Each week they’ll recruit a practicing lawyer to attend and share a little bit of insight on how they network to make new connections and get new business. It’s an important skill we all need (and we can even use it to get jobs). If you are interested in coming, please email seamus@emeraldcitylawgroup.com.

October 1: Breakfast with the Best- A Decade of Legal Advocacy

Breakfast the Best

Washington Appleseed brings together the best legal minds to address important social justice issues, and together we are changing our community for the better!   For this momentous 10th anniversary year, we are excited to welcome special guest Washington State First Lady Trudi Inslee and keynote speaker Nancy Amidei, director of the University of Washington Civic Engagement Project and senior lecturer emeritus of the UW School of Social Work. A long-time advocate for social justice with a special emphasis on hunger prevention, Nancy Amidei is a recipient of the UW Outstanding Public Service Award, the UW Retirement Association Distinguished Retiree Excellence in Community Service Award, and is the author of the advocacy manual So You Want to Make a Difference: A Key to Advocacy.

Join us on October 1, as we focus our attention on Appleseed’s “Breakfast after the Bell” initiative to increase economic and food security for Washington children and families by providing a nutritious breakfast for children as part of the school day. Hear about the impact of Appleseed’s work on this issue, learn how you can help make a difference, and celebrate the work of all of our pro bono and community partners on an array of important social justice issues.
