Previous award winners have included President Barack Obama’s Secretary of Labor Appointee, Thomas E. Perez, and President George W. Bush’s U.S. Attorney General Appointee, Alberto Gonzales.

Every year the Consumer Attorneys of California (CAOC) nominates attorneys for the “Attorney of The Year” award. The nomination alone is considered a high honor amongst civil litigators in California.

CAOC looks for an attorney who has overcome unusual obstacles or long odds to provide justice to victims of civil wrongdoing. COAC also looks for an attorney who has assisted consumers or changed consumer law for the better through vigorous litigation in California.

In 2011, attorney Juan J. Dominguez was honored by the CAOC for being nominated “Attorney of the Year” in California. In 2017, attorney Olivier Taillieu of The Dominguez Firm was honored with distinction, being nominated Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles (CAALA) “Trial Attorney of the Year.” The nomination alone is considered one of the highest honors bestowed to a personal injury attorney.

The award is earned by only the few personal injury attorneys that have obtained a verdict or settlement of $2 million dollars or more in a personal injury case. Fewer than 1% of U.S. lawyers are members.

Attorney Juan J. Dominguez has also been honored with membership in the Elite Lawyers of America national attorney organization for similar accomplishment. In fact, The Dominguez Firm has secured over 100 results at or in excess of one-million dollars in injury cases.


Attorneys Juan J. Dominguez, Tim Dominguez, and Olivier Taillieu of The Dominguez Firm have been named a Super Lawyer. Every year, Los Angeles Magazine and Southern California Super Lawyers® Magazine list the top 5% of all practicing attorneys in the Southern California area. In order to be included in this list, attorneys must be nominated by others in the legal field and must go through an extensive review process. Super Lawyers® uses peer nominations and evaluations as well as third-party research to determine which lawyers are eligible for inclusion.

After an attorney has been nominated, the attorney is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and personal achievement. The attorneys are rated 1 through 10 on each indicator. Only those who are in the highest bracket according to their scores are granted inclusion on the list of Super Lawyers®. We are proud to have attorney Matthey Joy at The Dominguez Firm who has been awarded a Rising Star by Super Lawyers. The selection process is the same as Super Lawyers, but the candidate must be 40 years of age or younger.


The National Association of Distinguished Counsel (NADC) “Top One Percent” is selected by a blue ribbon panel of attorneys that studies the results provided by the NADC research team. These attorneys, having achieved podium status in their own right by multiple independent organizations separate and apart from the NADC, are specially positioned with the perspective and knowledge in selecting “Nation’s Top Attorneys.”

While considering the information presented to them, they make careful determinations as to which of their peers possesses the background, accomplishments, and prowess to serve as an example to other attorneys. The result is a list of attorneys who are considered truly elite. Less than 1% of practicing attorneys in the United States are members of the “Nation’s Top Attorneys”. Attorneys Juan J. Dominguez and Olivier Taillieu of The Dominguez Firm are proud members”.
