Why is it important for the firm to take on leadership roles in the Bar?

Jan 5, 2024

I believe it’s a crucial aspect of the firm’s ethos. When Michael and I founded the firm in 1996, our commitment extended beyond robustly representing clients. We aimed to contribute to the legal community and the broader society. Over the past 28 years, all firm members have been encouraged to take on leadership roles in the legal community, speak at events, engage in local bar associations, and participate in various volunteer activities. Notably, as a plaintiff’s firm, our active involvement in organizations such as the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association and the American Association for Justice sets us apart. Michael and I have both served as presidents of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, with Natalie slated to assume the role in the coming years. This level of commitment is unique to our firm. While Michael has recently stepped back from leadership roles in both organizations, others within the firm are stepping up to continue the tradition.
