We meet at 7:00 am, and mingle in our lobby with bagels/muffins, fruit, coffee until 7:30. At 7:30, we head to our conference room. I give an intro and explanation.

I then open the floor to some topic of discussion. By about 8:35, wrap it up and call for personal meetings. By 8:45, we’re done.
What Our Members Say
- Mauricio Leon de la Barra Mexico and California Attorney at Law
“TEN can be described in TEN words: An extraordinary source of referrals, resources and very good friends. I got my first referral a few days after my first meeting. Its members have always provided my clients with outstanding legal solutions in different areas of law. And I have the honor of considering each member a very good friend.”
- Larry A. Rothstein, Esq. Trial Lawyer & Civil Litigator
“Although I have been a member of other professional networking organizations, David’s idea of one limited to small and solo law firms is both unique and exciting. Many of us in small and solo practices have developed expertise in limited practice areas. This makes for a particular dynamic because we are able to refer clients with specific needs to those having the specialized skills to handle them.”
- Cynthia Elkins Employment Law
“Have been a member of TEN since its inception. It is a wonderful and very cost efficient resource for solos and attorneys from small firms as this is my primary referral source both for receiving referrals and giving out referrals and this wonderful group of members helps to expand my referral base.”
