Orange County Women Lawyers Association
“Attorney of the Year” award recognizes contributions in the legal profession and community.

The Orange County Women Lawyers Association (OCWLA) has honored Orange County litigation partner and Executive Committee member Michele Johnson as its “Attorney of the Year” for both her market-leading practice and her leadership roles in the community. Johnson is well-regarded for her high-stakes litigation practice and was recently recognized nationally by Law360 as one of the “25 Most Influential Women in Securities Law.” She also has a longstanding commitment to giving back to the community, having served, for example, on the boards of the Public Law Center and the Orange County chapter of the Association of Business Trial Lawyers. She recently received the Anti-Defamation League of Orange County’s Jurisprudence Award in recognition of her strong commitment to civil rights.
