Remembering Michael Wine

The small world of California discipline lost one of its most liked and respected members with the untimely death of Michael Wine this last weekend.Scan160607112915Many of us met Michael when he served as a judge pro tem of the State Bar Court in the early 1990s.  Michael left the Court and became a discipline defense lawyer and a founding member of the Association of Discipline Defense Counsel.  Later, his leadership skills would lead him to become President of that organization. He was smart,  funny and worked hard for his clients.  Michael got along with everybody, even Deputy Trial Counsel.  A graduate of UCLA Law School, he was a lifelong Bruin and attended UCLA sporting events with Bruins from both sides of the discipline world.   He was also a truly devoted to his home team, the LA Dodgers.  Michael was my colleague and my friend, and I (and many others) will miss him dearly.
