Name: Caroline Djang, 2022 OCWLA Treasurer
Place of Work: Best Best & Krieger LLP
What is your practice area? Bankruptcy.
Fun Fact About Me: I win a lot of raffles. My prizes include a flat-screen TV, a diamond necklace, a Polaroid camera, a spa basket worth more than $1,000 and many others!
Philanthropic Interests: I am a member of Women for Girls (girls inc.) and Coro Women in Leadership. Being a woman, diverse partner at a law firm gives me an enormous platform to mentor and lead future generations.
Recent Professional Accomplishment: I was recently honored on the following lists by Southern California Super Lawyers: Orange County Top 50, Top 50 Women and Top 100 overall.
Favorite part about OCWLA: CLE's, Mixers, Networking, The Gala! My firm was honored with the inaugural Advancement of Women Award, and my nominee, Judge Erithe Smith, was honored as Judge of the Year. I also love being on the Exec Board!
Anything else you would like OCWLA Members to know about you: There is no one way to achieve success as a woman lawyer. I took a non-traditional path by clerking for the Bankruptcy Court for seven years before entering private practice. I have been a partner at two wonderful law firms and chair my firm's bankruptcy practice. I enjoy mentoring young lawyers, so please feel free to contact me to chat!
