“Civil Gideon” is now law in the state of California providing counsel to those who cannot afford an attorney in civil cases, predominantly child custody cases and foreclosures. On Lawyer2Lawyer, co-host and attorney, Bob Ambrogi welcomes Attorney Robert L. Rothman, partner of the firm Arnall Golden Gregory LLP and Attorney James J. Brosnahan, senior partner with Morrison & Foerster and member of the California Commission on Access to Justice, to take a look at the impact of this new law in California and how it could potentially change the legal system nationwide.

Legal funding barely existed just a few short years ago and now is perhaps the fastest emerging financial trend in the legal business community. On Lawyer2Lawyer, Law.com bloggers and co-hosts, J. Craig Williams and Robert Ambrogi, will explore what’s new in the industry of legal funding, talk to a plaintiff attorney about what goes into a case with the assistance of legal funding and discuss the ethics and the statues/regulations that apply to legal funding. Lawyer2Lawyer welcomes Gary Chodes, founder and CEO of Oasis Legal Finance, Robert Hawley, Deputy Executive Director of the State Bar of California and Ron Kramer, Plaintiff Attorney out of Utah, to tell us a little more about the Legal Funding Industry.
