Nomination deadline - June 12, 2009
 
Every year, Consumer Attorneys of California (CAOC) recognizes one distinguished member attorney who, in representing his or her clients on a daily basis, has overcome incredible odds to provide justice to victims, and has established precedent that will make a difference in the lives of Californians. The Consumer Attorney of the Year Award will honor a plaintiff attorney who has achieved a significant result in a case that was finally resolved between May 15, 2008, and May 15, 2009, and which case has assisted consumers or changes consumer law for the better in the State of California.
 
We are also pleased to present the Street Fighter of the Year Award, which will exemplify the everyday struggle of the small practitioner in California and will highlight the efforts of one plaintiff attorney who, through the practice of law, has helped to create a more just society regardless of profit or personal benefit.
The awards will be presented during CAOC's Annual Installation and Awards Dinner, November 14, 2009, at The Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco. The dinner is held in conjunction with CAOC's 48th Annual Convention.
 
We ask that you take a moment to nominate CAOC members you feel are deserving of these awards. The nomination process will close May 29, 2009, at which time the Awards Committee will select ten finalists for the Consumer Attorney of the Year Award and the five finalists for the Street Fighter of the Year Award. Nominations must be received in the state office by June 12, 2009.
 
Please plan to join us, and support your nominee, on November 14, 2009, at the Annual Installation and Awards Dinner.
