San Diego County paralegals, attorneys and legal experts had the opportunity to nominate distinguished paralegals in their field. The nomination process began in December, with more than 190 nominations submitted. A total of 120 nominations met the criteria set out for participation.

A panel of eight independent judges each scored 15 nominees, based on five criteria: honesty and integrity; professionalism; community outreach; enthusiasm and teamwork; and the "x-factor" -- unique characteristics that made them stand out from their peers.

Scoring was done on the following scale: 5 points possible for honesty and integrity (weighted x3); 5 points possible for professionalism (weighted x2); 5 points possible for community outreach; 5 points possible for enthusiasm and teamwork; and 5 extra points possible for the x-factor; for a possible total of 40 points.

The five highest scoring nominees per judge advanced as semi-finalists. In cases where there was a tie for highest score, both nominees advanced to the next round. The 43 semi-finalists were announced on Jan. 31.

The panel met on Feb. 1 at The Daily Transcript offices to pick the 20 finalists.

The Daily Transcript is privileged to present the following section highlighting the peer-nominated and independently judged best and brightest in San Diego's legal assistant arena.
