A Voice for Women in the Law Since 1980

The Board and membership of WLAC would like to congratulate Gina Dashman (Boer) on her appointment as a Commissioner on the Contra Costa Bench. We have complete confidence that she will uphold the rule of law in a fair and compassionate manner. Commissioner Dashman is the latest in a line of bench officers that have ascended from our ranks. Most recently, Judge Dickinson and Commissioner Satarzadeh, both past Presidents of WLAC, have also joined the Alameda County bench.

The appointment of Commissioner Dashman brings us one step closer to the day in which all the benches in the bay area have achieved equity and diversity.
