Laughing at Lawyers Will Fund Legal Services for the Disadvantaged

Instead of being butts, five San Diego lawyers and three local law students will be the sources of jokes at the LAF-Off (Lawyers are Funny) Comedy Competition and Fundraiser on March 24, 2011, at the House of Blues in downtown San Diego. Thanks to City National Bank and other generous sponsors, the evening’s proceeds will benefit the non-profit San Diego Volunteer Lawyer Program, Inc., which for more than 25 years has provided free civil legal assistance to vulnerable San Diegans, including children, domestic violence victims, and those living with HIV/AIDS.

The opposing counsel of defending Funniest Attorney Patti Zlaket will be Brian Erickson, John Schweitzer, Neal Svalstad, and Cynthia Thornton, as fellow lawyers Dan Link, Judy Copeland, and Dan Lawton “judge” each routine. Not to miss a networking opportunity, one student from each local law school–Thomas Jefferson School of Law, California Western School of Law, and University of San Diego School of Law–will also join in the stand-up throwdown, for the title of “Funniest Law Student.”

Former LAF-Off contestant Jim Pokorny will emcee the event, having abandoned the possibility of ever winning. To purchase tickets and for other information, visit, or call (619) 235-5656, ext. 110, for sponsorship information.
