Lex Romana (Italian American Lawyers of Orange County) takes pride in being the premier OCBA affiliate that places equal emphasis on the importance of legal, cultural, epicurean and fermented contributions Italians have made to our society. Our group meets the second Tuesday of every month rotating between a variety of local Italian restaurants. We are well known for our love of Italian culture, food and wines and believe everyone is an Italian at heart. Like a scene from “Goodfellas”, our dinners are an experience of multiple conversations sparking across the table, bursts of laughter, and wine glasses chiming that define our vision of the term “Networking”.
Lex Romana established its roots in the Orange County community in 1979 with Joseph D’Antony installed as first President and past Founding Members that included the Hon. James DiCesare, Frank Barbaro, John DiCaro, Joseph DiVincenzo, Andrew Lachina, and Frank Terreri.
Our membership continues to grow adding non-Italians and non-lawyers alike and we welcome everyone with open arms. With dues at only $50 a year, there is no better way to break from the daily grind one evening a month to enjoy our festivities that include our Installation Dinner at Antonello Ristorante, Bocce matches at Il Fornaio with dinner on the patio June through August, a joint meeting with the Celtic Bar at Prego’s in September, wine tasting, Jazz night and our annual Columbus Day dinner at the Balboa Bay Club in October, to name just a few. We will soon become an approved MCLE provider – what better way to earn credits than a presentation over wine and pasta! (This will be kept to a minimum to ensure more fun than work!). Featured 2010 speakers include Hon. Robert Polis (Ret.) on “Civility in the Courtroom from a Judge’s Perspective” and Justice Eileen Moore speaking on “Bias” in November.
