We are also pleased to present the Street Fighter of the Year award, which will go to a member or members working together for work on a case that exemplifies the everyday struggles of a new or small-firm consumer attorney in the State of California. Pro-bono work and landmark cases, which may have resulted in minimal financial verdicts, will be given special consideration. Nominees must be CAOC members who have practiced law for no more than 10 years or work in a firm with 5 or fewer attorneys. To be eligible for consideration, the case must have reached final resolution between May 15, 2015 and May 15, 2016. “Finally resolved” means no further legal work of any kind by any party will occur, including post-trial motions or appeals.
