The Civil Justice Program at Loyola Law School, Los Angeles hosted its 14th annual Tribute to the Champions of Justice dinner and award ceremony on Oct. 18 at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
John A. “Jack” Girardi, attorney at Girardi | Keese, and Debra E. Pole, partner at Sidley Austin LLP, were this year’s honorees. The awards annually recognize attorneys who advance the civil justice system through their work both in and out of court. Honorees’ careers are marked by professional excellence, technical proficiency and uncompromising integrity.
“This year’s honorees exemplify the civil justice system at its very best,” said John Nockleby, Loyola Law School professor and founding director of the Civil Justice Program. “Our honorees have been zealous advocates for their clients while also improving the profession for everyone they serve.”
