Karen Guidotti and Supervisor Warren Slocum

This year I had the privilege of honoring Karen Guidotti, Chief Deputy District Attorney of San Mateo County, on behalf of the Board of Supervisors as the 2014 Barbara Hammerman Honoree. This award recognizes one person each year who has done more to reduce domestic violence, protect victims, and advocate for needed legal reforms in San Mateo County. Karen Guidotti is most deserving of this award. She works tirelessly with advocates, law enforcement officials, witnesses, and victims to prepare airtight defenses that protect victims and their families. She is collaborative, creative and works tirelessly; we are so fortunate to have her leadership. Congratulations, Karen!
