The Orange County Women Lawyers Association celebrated the end of summer with a sunset cruise around Newport Harbor. Members were invited to join together for a networking social as they enjoyed the beautiful Southern California sunset aboard a yacht. In addition, Sheniece Smith was awarded OCWLA’s Everyday Hero Award. Ms. Smith is Associate General Counsel at Children’s Hospital of Orange County; however, she was recognized for her ongoing work with the Veterans Legal Institute dedicated to providing pro bono legal assistance to homeless, at risk, disabled, and low income current and former service members. The Everyday Hero Award is given throughout the year and recognizes accomplishments both big and small of OCWLA members and members of the local legal community.
