I attended the Milford Bar Assocation bar-b-que yesterday. It was great catching up with old friends and new friends of the Milford Bar in a relaxed outdoor environment. I am pretty sure I was the only patent attorney there!
The Milford Bar Association has been in existence since 1976. When it was originally formed, there were approximately 28 lawyers, not enough to fill up one page of the yellow pages advertisement. Currently there are 130 dues paying members of the Milford Bar Association, as well as over 50 exempt members consisting of the judiciary, court clerks, prosecutors, public defenders, and city attorneys. For more information on the Milford Bar Association, go here.
