In 2002, I received the Ventura County Criminal Defense Bar Association Richard Erwin Award which is the equivalent of “Trial Lawyer of the Year” from the defense bar in Ventura County. This award arose from my successful motion to dismiss a capital murder with a rape special circumstance indictment by the Ventura County Grand Jury because the Ventura County Superior Court’s “blue ribbon” grand jury selection procedure resulted in the systematic under representation of wome
