Unlike your typical summer socials punctuated by lemonade and fancy ladies, the recent "Power Lawyers Social" at Peska brought together judges, attorneys of all stripes, and candidate judges, clearly altering the concept.

Attorney Gregg Harrison organized the cocktail-fueled affair as a mix and mingle where plaintiff and defense attorneys rubbed elbows with sitting judges and those who would hold the gavel, and where Democrats and Republicans played nice. Making this gathering all the more interesting were the swag bags from Evolve Air, the shared ownership regional air service.

The response to Harrison's invitation was so gratifying that he will hold another social in the fall, this one a fundraiser for a local non-profit.

Among those exchanging pleasantries were Rusty Hardin, S.J. Swanson, Judge Alix Smoots-Hogan, Scott Brann, Sophia Mafrige, David Batagower, Brenda Cheney, Judge Cindy Smith, Ralph Manginello, Travis Torrence, Tricia Bonilla Harrison, Kevin Jewel and Polly Looper.
