The Barristers Association provides members opportunities to interact and network with their colleagues in the legal field with the purpose of providing camaraderie among young and newly admitted lawyers in Riverside County.

"When young and new attorneys network, socialze and give back to our community, everyone benefits," Talkov said. "This coming year, I plan to continue my efforts to expand the importance of Barristers by organizing innovative events, finding generous sponsors and leading creative initiatives to ensure that young attorneys are stakeholders in the future of our community."
