September 29, 2011 –  Lim Ruger Associate Norma Nava is the Vice President of For People of Color, Inc. (“FPOC”), a non-profit organization recently awarded the 2011 State Bar of California Diversity Award.

Established in 2001, the State Bar Diversity Award recognizes outstanding efforts and significant contributions in promoting diversity within the legal profession.
