I value the level of dedication and community spirit found within the SCCBA. I support the services that the SCCBA provides to the legal community in Santa Clara County and would like to see the SCCBA continue to thrive. I would appreciate your vote to allow me to continue to serve the SCCBA as President-Elect.

My name is Kate Wilson and I am a candidate for the position of Treasurer of the Santa Clara County Bar Association (“SCCBA”) for 2016. I am running for Treasurer because I would like to continue to serve our legal community through the SCCBA and I believe my experience will be a valuable asset to our association. I am an active member of the SCCBA having served as the association’s Secretary in 2015 as well as a Trustee and a member of the Finance Committee for the past six years and a member of the Executive Committee in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014 and 2015. In addition, I have previously served as the Chair of the Civil Practice Committee, Chair of the Barristers Committee, a member of the Strategic Planning Committee, a member of the E-Discovery Task Force, and a member of the Professional Rules Revisions Task Force.

I am currently the Director and Corporate Counsel of Global Employment Law and Commercial Litigation for Extreme Networks, Inc. where my in-house practice focuses on employment law, commercial litigation and general corporate matters. I regularly present on a wide variety of legal topics such as recognizing and preventing sexual harassment, employment law updates for employers, document retention, electronic discovery and electronic media in the workplace. I also volunteer my time as a guest lecturer at SCU for classes including Pre-Trial Litigation Techniques, Law Practice Management and Patent Litigation.

If elected, I hope to use my SCCBA, personal and professional experience to represent our membership as the 2016 Treasurer for the SCCBA. I would appreciate your vote in support of my candidacy.

Thank you.

Kate Wilson




KEVIN M. HAMMON

Term of Office

2016

Firm

Santa Clara County Counsel’s Office

Address

373 West Julian Street, Ste. 300, San Jose, CA 95110

Type of Practice

Child Dependency Law

Law School

UCLA

Date of Admission
to the California Bar

2004

As our personal and professional lives become increasingly impacted, we are often left with little time to participate in community service and professional organizations. I do not take your involvement in the Santa Clara County Bar Association for granted. Thank you for participating in the SCCBA’s 2016 Election for Officers and Board of Trustee Members. Thank you for considering my candidacy for Secretary.

I have enjoyed serving as a Member of the Board of Trustees since 2011, Chair of the Lawyer Referral Service Committee since 2014, Member of the SCCBA’s Executive Committee between 2011 and 2012, and the Chair of the Law Related Education Committee in 2010. Through the years, I have had the pleasure of working with SCCBA C.E.O. Chris Burdick, SCCBA staff, and a variety of current and former SCCBA Officers and Trustees. Without exception, they have been kind, insightful, and professional. It is indeed a privilege to be in their company. If elected Secretary, I will take minutes for the SCCBA’s Board of Trustee, Executive Committee, and Finance Committee meetings. Beyond that, I will strive to be a valuable member of the SCCBA team- carefully considering proposals and providing appropriate input.

Since 2004, I have been involved in Santa Clara County’s annual High School Mock Trial Tournament. I have served as the Tournament Administrator for the past three years. The Tournament represents a partnership between the SCCBA, the Santa Clara County Office of Education, and the Santa Clara County Superior Court. Over 100 attorneys volunteer their time as scorers. The Bench provides courtrooms and judges. Over 400 students participate in the program, serving as attorneys, witnesses, bailiffs, and court clerks. The reviews from teachers, attorneys, students, and staff have been overwhelmingly positive. I believe this Tournament exemplifies the SCCBA’s commitment to collaboration, member service, and community impact.

Since 2008, I have been a lawyer in the Santa Clara County Counsel’s Child Dependency Unit. I worked in the County Counsel’s Litigation Unit between 2007 and 2008. Between 2004 and 2007, I was a litigation attorney at McManis Faulkner.
