About Us

For over 36 years Versatape, Richard Johnson and President James Tanefski, have been producing continuing legal education seminars on a variety of audio formats. These audio programs offer attorneys the opportunity to listen to legal seminars at their convenience.

In 1978 Richard Johnson, founder and CEO of Versatape, contracted with the State Bar of California to audio record legal education seminars presented at State Bar Annual Meetings and their various Section’s seminars and programs. These audio recorded masters were then duplicated on audio cassettes and CDs and sold to lawyers interested in keeping current in their respective areas of the law.

In 1983 Mr. Johnson founded Versatape. For the next 30 years Versatape continued to audio record legal education seminars presented at State Bar meetings. In addition to recording these programs Versatape produced, packaged, marketed, and distributed audio copies of these continuing legal educational programs to California attorneys.

In the fall of 1991, with the advent of the new Minimum Continuing Legal Education requirement placed on attorneys, Versatape continued offering these programs now qualified for MCLE credit.

Currently Versatape produces MCLE approved audio programs of MCLE seminars offered by multiple MCLE Approved Providers including the San Fernando Valley Bar Association, and the Pasadena Bar Association.

As President of Versatape, I am particularly proud of our 30-year track record of excellent customer service. We count thousands of California lawyers as customers, many of them repeat.

Versatape has been a lifesaver for me in keeping my continuing education units up to date. Over the years I have used Versatape on many occasions. Their customer service is impeccable and the service they provide to attorneys is unmatched by any other.
