Young Lawyers' Division
2019 Recap

By Jeremy D. Puglia, 2019 YLD Chair, 2020 Bench Bar Chair

The YLD had an active year in 2019.
In January and February, Erin Aronson ran the Mock Trial
Program and did a fantastic job. The YLD Executive Board
and Advisory Committee stepped up to a challenge set
forth in the beginning of the year for each member to
volunteer as a Bailiff/Juror at least 3 nights each. This
provided Erin with an initial base of support where 10
members volunteered 3 nights each, causing 30 slots to
be filled from the jump. With the help of the Mock Trial
Happy Hour (organized by Gabe Montemuro and Michael
Shelton and sponsored by PNC Wealth Management), Erin
did the rest and made it look easy! We are excited for her
leadership in 2020 as she becomes the YLD Chair.

The YLD also teamed up with Member Services, and the
BCBA as a whole, to attend the Bridge the Gap program on
March 25th. The goal was to get newly admitted attorneys
to become members of the BCBA. We all look forward to
this becoming an annual event that the YLD can throw
its weight behind.
In June, the 3rd Annual Judge John J. Rufe Softball took
place. The weather cooperated with us (for the most part).
PNC Wealth Management sponsored the entire event,
including paying for T-Shirts for all the players, and for a
"Happy-2-Hour" at Giuseppe's Pizza in Warminster. This
was a new location that seemed to get great reviews.
Congratulations to Breandan Nemec for, once again, being
carried by Larry Scheetz to a victory. The YLD looks forward
to getting back on the winning side of things in 2020.
Note: The YLD would also like to announce a fundraiser
for 2020, the proceeds of which will go to purchase Chris
"Bubba" McGinley a new set of cleats.

event, coordinating the entire thing. Thanks, Chris! We look
forward to you joining the Executive Board in 2020.
The BCBA Bench Bar Conference took place in September.
What a great time at Seaview! It was, without a doubt, the
best Bench Bar since Hershey. The YLD was well represented
at the Conference, and brought a new event with it:
LEGAL QUIZZO! Jen Severens (Pierce) and Elaine Yandrisevits
Co-Chaired the YLD Bench Bar Committee and did a
fantastic job getting together more than 40 questions and
answers for the legal trivia game. We'd also like to thank
the other members of this committee: Josephine Lee, Erin
Aronson, Jeremy Whalen and Michael Shelton. The YLD
raised more than $1,000 with its Basket of Cheer this year,
with a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label as a centerpiece.

In July, the YLD participated in a Multi-County "Young
Lawyer Summit." It was a Quizzo night and The Bucks
team won! About 40 people were in attendance, with
10 members from our Association. Thank you to Esquire
Depositions for sponsoring the event, and to Mitch
Baylarian for coordinating.
August brought us another Happy Hour in the lower-end
at the Green Parrot. Chris Mahoney took the reins on this
