A Los Angeles-based attorney was named the 2013 Latino Attorney of the Year by the Hispanic National Bar Association (HNBA), the group announced Wednesday.
Juan J. Dominguez received the prestigious award during the HNBA's 38th annual convention in Denver, Colo., one of the largest gathering Hispanic legal professionals in the U.S. Dominguez joins the ranks of previous award winners that include President Barack Obama's Secretary of Labor Thomas E. Perez and former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.
The Attorney of the Year Award recognizes the accomplishments, contributions and breadth of engagement by individual attorneys who have distinguished themselves in their endeavors and commitment to the great community, the HNBA said. The HNBA represents the interests of more than 100,000 attorneys and judges in the U.S.
"I dedicate this award to the clients that empower me with the determination to fight for justice always," Dominguez said in a press release.
Dominguez has more than 25 years of experience in personal injury, workers' compensation and consumer rights' law. His law firm has reportedly recovered more than $300 million for accident victims. Dominguez has been nominated for Attorney of the Year by Consumers Attorneys of California and a Super Lawyer for four years by Los Angeles Magazine.
