OAKLAND, Calif., Nov. 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Liberty Law, a respected Oakland California law firm (http://libertylaw.com), has announced that its founder, Micha Star Liberty has been awarded the prestigious 'Street Fighter of the Year' award by the Consumer Attorneys of California.
The coveted annual award was given to Micha Liberty earlier this month by the organization, in response to a successful case that held the Contra Costa County School District accountable for the sexual assault of a special needs student.
"This really is an honor," said Micha Star Liberty. "Being recognized by the Consumer Attorneys of California for standing by a client when he needed us the most, shows that the legal industry in California continues to hold true to the core beliefs that make me proud to be an attorney."
The 'Street Fighter of the Year' award is given by the Consumer Attorneys of California (CAOC) to highlight the work done by California's practitioners in smaller firms with less than five attorneys. The award is given to a member or members for work on a case that exemplifies the everyday struggles of small-firm consumer attorneys in California.
Upon presenting the 2015 award, the CAOC acknowledged Ms. Liberty's tenacious fight to hold the Contra Costa County School Board accountable for the sexual assault of a 14 year old special needs student by another special needs student while on the school campus. Ms. Liberty discovered that the school district knew about two other on-campus sexual assaults involving the perpetrator and failed to adequately supervise and protect her client.
This year's 'Street Fighter of the Year' award was presented at an awards dinner during the CAOC's 54th Annual Convention at The Palace Hotel in San Francisco on November 8th.
