Orthodox Christian Attorney Network



Welcome to the webpage of the Orthodox Christian Attorney Network! We are an informal group of Orthodox attorneys from various jurisdictions who desire to meet together and discover how we can serve our Lord through the legal profession.

Join us in downtown Chicago for a gathering of Orthodox Christian attorneys from across the country for a time of learning, fellowship, and networking!
