The 2015 Tournament

2015 EHMGT Brochure Cover On September 21, 2015 Public Counsel and the Central District Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys Association will host the Earle Hagen Memorial Golf and Tennis Tournament at the Porter Valley Country Club in Los Angeles. The Tournament is an annual charity event, attended by lawyers, judges and many other senior members of the Los Angeles legal community, and it is named in honor of Earle Hagen, a respected member of the bankruptcy bar for over 40 years.

All proceeds from the Tournament will go towards the support of Public Counsel Law Center and its Debtor Assistance Project. Public Counsel is the largest pro bono law firm in the nation, providing over $70 million in free legal services each year. Since it was established ten years ago, Public Counsel's Debtor Assistance Project has helped thousands of individuals to navigate the bankruptcy system as they face foreclosure, job loss, major illness and other devastating life changes.

Judge Maureen Tighe Even someone of my nonexistent golf ability can have a lot of fun at this tournament. While aiming for that tiny little ball was hopeless, walking the greens with our wonderful pro bono volunteers gave me renewed hope in the legal profession. I hope both golfers and other non-golfers will join me at this fun event.
- Judge Maureen Tighe

Earle Hagen This tournament honors Earle Hagen and his legacy of service to the bankruptcy community in the Central District of California. A respected fixture of the bankruptcy bar for over 40 years, Earle maintained an active bankruptcy practice while also serving the larger community. He was not only one of the founders of the Bankruptcy Study Group, which later became the Los Angeles Bankruptcy Forum, but he also always had time to mentor younger attorneys. He was also committed to providing reasonably priced legal services for society's have-nots, believing that everyone deserves access to the legal system. This tournament, which benefits those who are most in need, is very much in the spirit of Earle's life and work.
