As your incoming president of the Italian American Lawyers Association: First and foremost, I would like to thank my mentor and outgoing president, Marianna Noli for guiding our bar association though the pandemic.  It has been a difficult time for bar associations across the county and thanks to Marianna’s leadership, we as a group are stronger than ever.

Next, I would like to thank our current board for their devotion and dedication to the Italian American Lawyers Association.  Their willingness to volunteer their precious time motivates me to give you my best as your president this year.  I would also like to thank the past presidents of our esteemed bar association for their support, guidance and advice.

As Covid rates continue to go down we look forward to meeting again in person.  We anticipate returning to our historic and traditional “Casa” at St. Peter’s in downtown L.A. where our group first met in 1977 and my dad was an original member.  At St. Peters we can once again enjoy delicious Italian food and congregate with other local bar associations while engaging with interesting and dynamic speakers. 

In the meantime, we look forward to seeing you at our upcoming Networking Night, sponsored by Holland & Knight.  The event will be at the Holland & Knight outdoor patio at 400 So. Hope St., in downtown L.A. on Wednesday, February 23rd at 6:00pm.  More information on this event and other colorful events hosted by our bar association can be found on the Italian American Lawyers Association website. 

Our goal is two-fold: to celebrate our shared cultural background as lawyers and to promote diversity by inviting and meeting with other multi-faceted bar associations that proliferate our legal community.

Ci Vediamo Presto!

Tony Costanzo 

President, Italian American Lawyers Association
