Deciding on the recipient of the OBA Award for Excellence in Civil Litigation is always a difficult decision, but this year the committee agreed that it was definitely going to be “tough.” Bonnie Tough to be precise. The senior partner of Tough & Podrebarac LLP has had an outstanding career as a litigator, educator and advocate for the profession, which made her the clear choice to receive this year’s award.
