Each year, California Lawyer recognizes a select and distinguished group of attorneys for achievements having a significant impact on public policy, the law, the legal profession, or a particular practice area. For 2017, one of these celebrated few is our very own Robin James.
Robin has just been named a recipient of a 2017 California Lawyer of the Year (CLAY) Award from the magazine for her stellar work in California Centinela Freeman v. Health Net of California, in which the California Supreme Court unanimously decided in favor of M|R’s clients (emergency medicine providers), ruling that health plans can be sued over unpaid medical bills even if those plans passed financial responsibility for emergency medical expenses to third parties.
It is a privilege and thrill to have a CLAY Award winner in our midst. Congratulations Robin.
