The National Law Journal has announced this year’s selections for its Lifetime Achievement Awards, and we are delighted to announce that Lieff Cabraser founding partner Elizabeth Cabraser is among the three honorees. “How do you measure a lifetime of success in the law,” the NLJ asks, and Elizabeth Cabraser is a perfect answer to the question. The Journal notes it is honoring three attorneys who “live their commitment to the law inside and outside of their offices,” mentoring other lawyers, serving on boards, and working pro bono publica.
In a profile piece that is companion to the announcement, the NLJ traces Elizabeth’s path through the law, observing that an early experience using the class action device to aggregate the claims of defrauded retirees led to her becoming “one of the country’s top class action lawyers.”
It is with great pleasure and pride that we extend our most heartfelt congratulations to Elizabeth.
The paywalled profile can be viewed on the National Law Journal’s website.
