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.

On Another's Sorrow
Can I see another's woe,
And not be in sorrow too?
Can I see another's grief,
And not seek for kind relief.

Can I see a falling tear.
And not feel my sorrows share,
Can a father see his child,
Weep, nor be with sorrow fill'd.

Can a mother sit and hear.
An infant groan an infant fear?
No no never can it be,
Never never can it be

And can he who smiles on all
Hear the wren with sorrows small
Hear the small bird's grief & care
Hear the woes that infants bear

And not sit beside the nest
Pouring pity in their breast.
And not sit the cradle near
Weeping tear on infant's tear.

And not sit both night & day.
Wiping all our tears away.
O! no never can it be.
Never, never can it be!

He doth give His joy to all:
He becomes an infant small,
He becomes a man of woe,
He doth feel the sorrow too.

Think not thou canst sigh a sigh,
And thy Maker is not by:
Think not thou canst weep a tear,
And thy Maker is not near.

O He gives to us His joy,
That our grief He may destroy:
Till our grief is fled and gone
He doth sit by us and moan.


— William Blake
