The RNLA is pleased to announce that Harmeet Dhillon has been named the 2018 Republican Lawyer of the Year:
The Board of Governors of the Republican National Lawyers Association (RNLA) has named Harmeet K. Dhillon of California the 2018 Republican Lawyer of the Year. Ms. Dhillon was selected as the 2018 Republican Lawyer of the Year in recognition of her outstanding professional accomplishments and years of service to the Republican Party and its ideals. She will be honored at a reception and luncheon at the Capitol Hill Club in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, November 14.
RNLA President Elliot Berke said of this year’s honoree: “We are thrilled to honor Harmeet – an excellent lawyer and communicator who advances our Republican ideals. She is a credit to our profession and to our RNLA ranks.”
RNLA Chair and 2016 Republican Lawyer of the Year John Ryder added: “I had the privilege of working Harmeet on the RNC and on the Republican National Convention Rules Committee. She is committed, smart and professional. She embodies all the qualities one would want in a Republican Lawyer of the Year.”
RNLA Co-Chair Joanne Young agreed: “Harmeet Dhillon faithfully serves the Republican Party with a particular commitment to defending free speech by conservatives. She represents her clients passionately and effectively, and is able to simplify complicated legal issues to the broader viewing public as a sought after television commentator. She is an excellent example of many strong and talented Republican women attorneys. The RNLA is pleased to honor Harmeet Dhillon as the Lawyer of the Year.”
RNLA Executive Director Michael Thielen stated: “For the last couple years, Harmeet has been the leader fighting for the conservative speech rights against the biggest liberal opponents. No fight is too big for her; whether it is the UC Berkeley College Administration, the City of San Jose, or Google, Harmeet never gives up. As such she is not only a great lawyer, but a great representative of what a Republican lawyer should be.”
Harmeet serves as the RNLA's Vice President for Communications, is the RNC Committeewoman for California, and frequently appears on Fox News as a commentator on legal issues. The rest of her impressive biography may be read here.
