Ever since Irvine attorney Ed Connor was a teenager at a Catholic high school in Nebraska, helping others in need has been a fundamental personal goal. Now that he's the 1998 president of the Orange County Bar Assn., Connor hopes to persuade his fellow lawyers to take up the mantle of volunteerism as well. "Lawyers have been gifted, for whatever reason, with a combination of luck, divine providence and hard work," said Connor, 47.
