PBUS opens dialogue with lawyers at NACDL reception
PBUS
With a goal of opening a dialogue with criminal defense lawyers, PBUS exhibited and co-sponsored the cocktail reception at the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers' Fall Seminar in Savannah, Oct. 17-18. Board member David Stuckman, who is a NACDL member, along with President Scott Hall and Executive Director Corrine Markey, represented PBUS.

Over 300 criminal attorneys and public defenders attended the two-day seminar. Many stopped at the PBUS table to find out more and ask questions about commercial bail. Corrine answered questions about how to find a bail agent, provided information from the Dallas study and other information about the bail industry.

The reception was an excellent venue to introduce PBUS to and open a dialogue with many of the attendees in a social setting. During the reception, Scott spent time with people from Wisconsin discussing the possibility of the return of commercial bail to the state. They were open to the information he provided about bail on which they hadn’t previously focused.

An unexpected benefit was from being located next to a marketing firm that specializes in the most advanced aspects of Google search that now changes weekly. David spoke to them at length about using their program for his business. Corrine and David also discussed having them do a workshop at the PBUS 2014 Winter Conference. All felt it was time well spent for PBUS.
