Additionally, Ariella served on the California State Bar’s Committee for Administration of Justice, participated as a settlement officer for the Los Angeles Superior Court, and acted as a member of the Junior League of Los Angeles.
While serving as an active member of the ABOTA Foundation, Ariella attends Chapter, National, and International Board meetings, giving her national and global insight into the best practices for handling jury trials. She works with other accomplished attorneys to help preserve each citizen’s right to jury trials, ensure the highest level of lawyers’ professionalism in the courtroom, and educate upcoming generations about their legal rights.
