David Hirsch, Partner at Carmel and Naccasha LLP, served as the 2013-2014 Chair of the State Bar’s Public Law Section Executive Committee. Each year, the Public Law Section selects and names an exceptional attorney, nominated from around the State, as the Public Lawyer of the Year. The award is presented at a reception held during the State Bar’s Annual Meeting, which was held this year in San Diego. Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakayue presented the 2014 award to Wendy L. Patrick, a San Diego County Deputy District Attorney during a ceremony on September 11th.
David Hirsch observed, “We received nominations of many truly exceptional public law attorneys this year. The Public Law Section was pleased and honored to name Wendy Patrick as California’s Public Lawyer of the Year.”
Hirsch focuses his practice on municipal law, land use law and related matters. He continues to actively contribute his time and knowledge to agencies supporting public law at both the state and local levels. He also volunteers with a number of organizations in the City of Arroyo Grande.
