Trial Lawyer of the Year Nominations are Currently Open

Each year the Orange County Trial Lawyers Association recognizes and honors local trial attorneys for their exceptional trial skills over the past 12 months. These attorneys not only show courage and commitment to their clients, but also demonstrate truly exceptional skill, ability, preparation, and professionalism to obtain outstanding results on behalf of their clients.  Outstanding results are not limited to the size of a verdict, but may include additional factors such as length of trial, complexity of liability or damages, the impact of the result beyond the case itself and any other unique identifying characteristics. Results can include jury verdicts, arbitration awards and bench trial awards.
In selecting the Trial Lawyer of the Year, the Nomination Committee may consider the following criteria:
  1. That the individual be an excellent advocate;
  2. The individual’s reputation of civility, ethics and fair play in and out of the courtroom;
  3. The individual’s reputation and standing in the community.
  4. The individual has meaningfully participated in an outstanding recent verdict as lead trial attorney

Nominations are also being accepted in the areas of Personal Injury, Business Litigation, Medical Malpractice, Employment Litigation or any other practice area.


Additional awards may be considered in these areas:

Young Gun.  The individual meets criteria 1-3 above, has been practicing law for 10 years or less and displays a consistent desire to try cases to conclusion, regardless of outcome.

Distinguished Achievement.  The individual meets criteria 1-3 above and has achieved an outstanding result through settlement, appeal or litigation that has significant impact for a consumer, the community or the civil justice system.

Whether an award winner is selected in any given category is at the sole discretion of the nomination committee and the board of directors.
