SAN FRANCISCO – Attorneys Alan Steinbrecher and Sean M. SeLegue have been reappointed to their seats on the State Bar Board of Trustees and will serve respectively as chair and vice-chair for one year, according to recent separate state bar and California Supreme Court news releases.

Steinbrecher and SeLegue will be sworn into their new roles during the board's next meeting Thursday, Sept. 19 and Friday, Sept. 20 at the state bar's Los Angeles office, according to the state bar's news release issued Sept. 2.

"Alan and I have worked closely as board colleagues," outgoing board chair Jason P. Lee was quoted in the state bar's news release. "The board and the state bar will continue to benefit from his steady leadership, deep knowledge, balanced perspective about the importance of our public protection mission, and his continued stewardship of the reforms we have worked so hard to achieve over the last several years."

The Supreme Court also re-appointed Fresno certified criminal law specialist Mark Broughton to a second four-year term on the board, according to the state bar's news release.

"With the court's current appointments, the board has fully transitioned to an all-appointed board and appointed board leadership, a reform effort that began in January 2018," the state bar's news release said.

The reappointments also were announced in a Supreme Court news release.

Steinbrecher, litigator and partner at Steinbrecher & Span LLP in Los Angeles, has served on the board as a Supreme Court appointee since 2016. He previously was board vice chair, co-chair of the board's Regulation and Discipline Committee and chair of the California Attorney Practice Analysis Working Group.

SeLegue, a partner at Arnold & Porter in San Francisco, was elected to the board in 2016 and most recently co-chaired the Regulation and Discipline Committee. He previously was chair of the state bar's Committee on Professional Responsibility and Conduct.

Broughton was first appointed by the Supreme Court to the board in 2016 and most recently chaired the Audit Committee.
