Irvine, Calif. – JAMS, the largest private provider of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services worldwide, is pleased to announce that Hon. Linda L. Miller (Ret.) was honored with the Project Youth Orange County Bar Foundation’s Distinguished Judicial Fellows Award. The award was presented during the organization’s 2022 annual meeting.
Each year, Project Youth OC hosts a Society of Fellows event to honor its members, selecting one member to receive the Distinguished Fellows Award and one judicial member to receive the Distinguished Judicial Fellows Award. Judge Miller will be recognized for her contributions within the Orange County legal community and her commitment to supporting the mission of Project Youth to promote the health, safety and wellness of the children in the region.
Judge Miller’s dedication to the community is evident through not only her accomplishments, but the respect that her peers have for her. Her care in creating safer spaces for youth and providing families with the tools to resolve conflict is what truly makes her shine. We congratulate her on this recognition and are grateful to have her on our panel.
