Orange County attorneys Michael A. Cornelius and Louis J. Knobbe received the Anti-Defamation League's "Jurisprudence Awards" this week for their outstanding contributions to the legal profession and their communities.
"Both of the recipients this year provide examples for others to follow and exemplify the ADL's mission in their accomplishments," said Bruno Ledwin, the league's Orange County / Long Beach region chairman.
"Michael has worked tirelessly over the years to put computers in the classroom and to enable our children to gain knowledge about their community," he said. "Louis has been a dedicated volunteer throughout our community in addition to his 40 years of legal service."
The league was founded in 1913. It is a civil rights organization dedicated to fighting anti-Semitism, racism, prejudice and bigotry.
Cornelius works for Western Digital and Knobbe is a partner in Knobbe, Martens, Olson & Bear.
