2021 Street Fighter of the Year
Nomination deadline - June 30, 2021

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, 2020 and May 15, 2021. “Finally resolved” means no further legal work of any kind by any party will occur, including post-trial motions or appeals.

 

Nominations for either award must be submitted by a CAOC member attorney. Nominations from other sources will not be accepted.

These awards will be presented in November, date/location to be determined.
