Sullivan Hill is excited to announce that Of Counsel Candace Carroll will receive the 2018 Outstanding Attorney Award from the San Diego County Bar Association (“SDCBA”). The award is presented to an exemplary attorney who provides outstanding community service above and beyond just service to the legal profession.
Carroll is a highly-regarded appellate practitioner with more than 40 years experience handling appeals in the federal, state, and bankruptcy appellate courts. Her cases have encompassed a wide range of subjects, including contract disputes, insurance and indemnity issues, wrongful termination, intellectual property, personal injury, constitutional issues, and complex family law matters.
Carroll is a long-standing supporter of the community and is actively involved in a variety of legal and civic organizations. She recently served for seven years as chair of Senator Barbara Boxer’s Judicial Advisory Committee for the Southern District of California. She serves on the board of directors of the San Diego Opera, and was appointed to sit on the board of the San Diego Convention Center Corporation from 2014-2016. Additionally, she is a past president of the San Diego County Bar Association, and of California Women Lawyers, the statewide women’s bar association. She has also served on the board of the American Bar Association’s Immigration Justice Project and the San Diego Volunteer Lawyer Program.
Carroll will be recognized at the SDCBA’s Annual Awards Luncheon & Celebration of Community Service on May 1, at the Westin San Diego (Emerald Plaza) from 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. The event takes place during the SDCBA’s celebration of Law Week and will also highlight the various public service activities, events and community outreach initiatives the SDCBA participates in throughout the year. The SDCBA’s Service Award recipients are nominated by the San Diego legal community and reviewed and selected by the SDCBA’s Awards Committee, with the approval of the SDCBA’s Board of Directors.
