I enjoyed your articles on lawyers and law firms in Los Angeles. The reading of the same brought back many conversations I had with my father, Isidore B. Dockweiler, who was born in this city in 1867, and renewed many old memories of early attorneys. It is interesting to note that no family in Los Angeles can say that some of its members will have continuously practiced law in Los Angeles for 100 years since Oct. 14, 1889, when my father was admitted to practice in this state, and opened his first office in the Bryson or Burdick block.

Chick said City Atty. Rocky Delgadillo reversed himself on a promise to allow her to conduct a performance audit of the contracts with outside legal firms, which The Times recently reported had increased in cost from $14 million to $29 million a year in five years.
