Profiles in Service

Congratulations to JRCLS member Amanda Hopper who has been elected as the district attorney in Sutter County, California. Amanda was elected in November as the first new district attorney in 30 years, and she secured 61% of the preliminary vote.  The JRCLS Women in the Law Section profiled Ms. Hopper on the WIL blog last year. You can read more at http://jrclswomen.blogspot.com/2014/01/meet-amanda-hopper.html.
Congratulations to JRCLS member Jane Wilson Mitchell who was recently chosen for her work as co-founder of The Reset Foundation on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list for Social Entrepreneurship (http://www.forbes.com/30under30/#/social-entrepreneurs). The Reset Foundation alleviates poverty through 40 to 60-person housing and educational campuses for sentenced young adults in New York and San Francisco as an alternative to serving prison time.
Additionally, three LDS attorneys have been called to stake presidencies since our last newsletter.  Attorney Jeffrey Heber Cluff has been called as a counselor in the Lubbock, Texas North Stake.  John Thomas Steffan, a partner at Hutchison & Steffan, has been called as a counselor in the Las Vegas, Nevada Redrock Stake.  Finally, Ian Anthony Puente, general counsel at Samuel Goldwyn Films, has been called as a counselor in the Los Angeles, California Stake.  Congratulations and thank you for your service. 
As always, if you hear of a Law Society member who is called to significant service within the church or otherwise, please let the media committee know so they can be in Profiles in Service! Email us at jrclsmediacommittee@gmail.com
