We here at Advocate Capital, Inc. are proud to partner with law firms across the country who fight for justice and help protect our seventh amendment rights. The attorneys we work with represent clients in a variety of areas, whether it’s wrongful death, workers’ compensation, or personal injury; and though they work hard to win every case, not all of their cases have an equal path to justice. Roadblocks like tort reform, mandatory arbitration and preemption often undervalue the efforts of plaintiff lawyers and keep them from helping injured victims and their families get the just compensation they deserve.
Public Justice, a law firm dedicated to the public interest, wants to shed light on this subject with its Illuminating Injustice Award. The award recognizes an individual whose case, like many others, didn’t quite pan out due to roadblocks like those mentioned above. If you or someone you know represented a client who suffered a severe injury, but was only able to receive a partial recovery (or none at all), that victim may be eligible to receive the award. Please fill out this form to nominate that victim for this special honor. The deadline for 2017 nominations is Friday, March 31st.
Public Justice is hoping the Illuminating Injustice Award raises awareness of these types of unfortunate events and prompts additional monetary help for the winning individual. They will present the award in July at the firm’s Gala and Awards Dinner in Boston, Massachusetts. The winner of Public Justice’s Trial Lawyer of the Year Award will also be announced at the event.
