Among the special guests and speakers for this year’s event are Mona Pasquil, appointments secretary for California Governor Jerry Brown, Joshua Groban, senior advisor to Governor Jerry Brown, and U.S. Attorney General Andre Birotte.

Other 2013 honorees include Judge of the Year, Judge Marguerite Downing and Lawyer of the Year Simona Farisse.
