Conventions, Committees, and Cases in Progress

Published on Jul 6, 2016 at 6:34 pm in Law and Information.

Work has kept us very busy here at Thomas Law Offices. A few or our attorneys are currently getting ready for the American Association for Justice (AAJ) Summer Convention being held July 22-26 in Los Angeles, California. For me, a typical convention day starts at 7 a.m. and goes until midnight, even 1 a.m. sometimes. By the time I’m done with our all-day meetings and lectures, receptions, dinners, and networking parties, I’m exhausted – but it’s definitely worth it.

We’re all looking forward to heading out to the West Coast. This annual convention brings together a group of trial lawyers from all over the country, keeping them up to date on the latest events and developments in our industry. I’ll be chairing the small firm section lectures, which means I’ll be focused on continuing education (CLEs) for solo practitioners and small-firm lawyers for an entire day. I’m also pleased to have been selected as a recipient of the American Association for Justice’s Distinguished Service Award which is being presented at the AAJ Board of Governors meeting.

My personal goals within AAJ are:

1.) To serve as an advocate for the civil justice system and our Seventh Amendment right to a jury trial in civil cases.
2.) To educate attorneys so they can best represent our clients in civil matters.

Recently, I was told I’ll have the honor of chairing the National College of Advocacy, a charitable organization responsible for AAJ’s education resources.

I’ve also been busy with speaking engagements. About five years ago, I started giving seminars on the use of technology during trial, and in your practice in general. Now, I’m traveling across the United States, speaking to small firms and solo practitioners about how to use technology in a cost effective way, that allows them to compete with large firms.

As you can see, it has been a busy spring and looks to be a busy, and hot, summer.
