A national SCI legal advocacy group is born
Today, the American Association for Justice, approved the creation of The Spinal Cord Injury Litigation Group. AAJ is the plaintiff trial lawyer’s national association.
I asked AAJ for this last July but the proposal was tabled until I could show more concretely, how it would help attorneys who represent those with SCI. Over the next six months, dozens of lawyers showed support by joining a facebook page. I was asked to create a packet of materials to be sold by AAJ to members handling SCI cases. With help from my firm, and several other lawyers around the country and in London, we put together a 4,000 page mammoth. It currently ranks among the ten top litigation packet sellers within AAJ.
Most importantly, I met Warren Collins from London. For the past decade he has chaired the English equivalent of this group.
Warren and I will be co-chairs of the AAJ SCI LG. We can’t wait to get started.
