The Beverly Hills Bar Association (BHBA), heralded for championing access to justice, an independent judiciary and the Rule of Law, honors at its Eighth Annual “BHBA Litigation Awards Dinner” two legal stalwarts – Justice Lee Smalley Edmon, Presiding Justice of Division Three of the Second Appellate District of the California Court of Appeal, and leading trial lawyer Daniel Grunfeld, executive vice dean for strategy and partnerships at the Pardee Rand Graduate School in Santa Monica who formerly served as head of West Coast Litigation for Morgan, Lewis & Bockius. The dinner is set for Tuesday, February 20, 2018, at 5:30 pm at Montage, Beverly Hills. Justice Edmon, noted for her exemplary public service and dedication to advancing the legal profession, receives the “Ronald M. George Award for Judicial Excellence,” named for the former California Supreme Court Chief Justice who retired in 2011 and was its first recipient. Grunfeld, who previously served as the president and CEO of Public Counsel, the largest pro bono public interest law firm in the United States, receives the “Excellence in Advocacy Award,” which honors a trial lawyer whose case successes have resulted from expert legal skills, unique trial strategy and courtroom teamwork, and who also gives back to the community.
“The Beverly Hills Bar Association is proud to recognize Justice Edmon and Daniel Grunfeld for their substantive and far reaching impact on the community and the legal field,” says BHBA President Richard Kaplan. “Their commitment to fairness and access to justice are exemplary.”
Justice Lee Smalley Edmon was appointed Presiding Justice of Division Three of the Second District Court of Appeal in January 2015 and before that, for the years 2011 and 2012, was the first woman Presiding Judge of the Los Angeles Superior Court. Throughout her entire legal career, Justice Edmon has been actively involved in bar association activities and legal services programs on a local, state and national level. In addition, for many years, she has been a co-author of The Rutter Group’s California Practice Guide: Civil Procedure Before Trial.
Daniel Grunfeld has three decades of legal, community building and policy making experience, earning him achievements in many arenas, including significant litigation and class action verdicts and pro bono service. He has served as President/CEO of Public Counsel, the nation’s largest pro bono law firm, on Mayor Villaraigosa’s Executive Team developing and implementing policy agenda, and as lead counsel in high profile matters as head of the West Coast litigation practice at Morgan Lewis. The Daily Journal has named him as one of the Top 100 Lawyers in California for more than 10 years, and Lawdragon Magazine named him as one of the Leading Lawyers in America on multiple occasions.
The Beverly Hills Bar Association, founded in 1931, is the fifth largest bar association in California with nearly 5,000 members. Its mission is to serve its members, to lead the legal profession and to advocate for justice in the community. Previous Beverly Hills Bar Association Litigation Dinner honorees include Former Chief Justice of California Ronald M. George; Presiding Justice Norman Epstein; The Hon. Christina A. Snyder; Judge Michael Nash; The Hon. Arthur Gilbert; The Hon. Stephen Reinhardt; Justice Laurie D. Zelon; Roman Silberfeld; Tom Girardi; Marshall B. Grossman; Browne Greene; Thomas J.
