STEPHEN NOEL ILG, ESQ: Stephen Ilg is an award-winning trial attorney and former Professor of Law teaching Civil Remedies. Stephen Ilg Was Named a Top Employment Attorney in California by the LA & SF Daily Journal in its annual list published on June 29, 2022. The LA/SF Daily Journal is the largest legal newspaper in California-the most populous U.S. State. Each year, the Daily Journal identifies the most accomplished attorneys in different practice areas and profiles them in a special supplement; this year Stephen Ilg was honored with the prestigious award for Labor and Employment. At NYU Law, the number six law school in the country, Stephen was a Dean’s Merit Award Scholar all three years. He was the only graduate in 2010 who earned an award in every Oral Advocacy competition and was elected to serve as a coach of NYU’s Moot Court team. Towards the end of law school, he compiled all the knowledge he had gained over several years as an LSAT teacher and Admissions Consultant and co-authored “The Busy Applicant’s Guide to Getting Into Law School,” which reached as high as number 7 on Amazon’s bestseller list for its category. Upon graduation, he returned to the class action law firm where he had worked as a receptionist then legal assistant before law school. In 2012, he made headlines for winning a hotly contested motion after multiple oral arguments and seven written briefs based almost exclusively on a little-known doctrine that he termed “timing choice of law.” The argument largely depended on a single case from 1927. One headline read, “L.A. Superior Court Approves of Young Attorney’s ‘Timing Choice-of-Law.’” In 2011 and 2013, the San Francisco Bar Association named him Outstanding Volunteer in Public Service. In 2015 and 2016, he was given Avvo’s Client Choice Award in Employment Law. For 2016, the American Institute of Legal Counsel named him as “10 Best” California employment law attorneys in client satisfaction. Stephen has been recognized as a superlative litigator and teammate. When not busy with legal activities, Stephen “relaxes” by participating in quasi-legal activities. He has served on the Board of Directors of three non-profit organizations, one of which he created and managed for three years. After his first debate in the California Conference of Bar Associations, he was nominated for election and won the election to serve on the Board of Directors of this 300- to 500-attorney organization that often sets the record for most legislative proposals introduced in the California legislature in a given year. Stephen is known to enjoy learning about a client’s experience, negotiating settlements and litigating in the courtroom. Watch Stephen Noel Ilg's interview with Fox2 news
