The Consumer Attorneys of California (CAOC) announced the 2020 finalists for Consumer Attorney of the Year and Street Fighter of the Year.
To be considered for CAOC’s Consumer Attorney of the Year award, members needed to have significantly advanced California consumers’ rights or safety by achieving a noteworthy result in a case.
Eligibility for Street Fighter of the Year is limited to CAOC members who have practiced for no more than ten years or work in a firm with no more than five attorneys and achieved a particularly noteworthy result.
Our friend and client, Roger Booth of Booth Law, along with two of his colleagues, were among those nominees selected as a finalist for Street Fighter of the Year 2020. A secret ballot of CAOC board members at the board meeting will choose the winner. The board will meet on September 25, 2020.
Roger fought for a young victim who was impregnated by her mother’s boyfriend. You may recall we blogged about this case previously. You can find a link to that post here. The settlement, believed to be the highest ever for a single victim of sexual abuse in California, compensated the girl for her horrible abuse and led to significant changes within the county department of social services involved, including the resignation of its director.
Advocate Capital wants to give a great big congratulations to Roger Booth and all of the other CAOC nominees. What you do makes a difference in your communities and for all of us. We thank you for your dedication to justice for your clients
