New CLE: The Role of Trial Lawyers in Protecting the Public

When a company equips 11 million of its cars with software to cheat federal emissions tests and standards. When a former star athlete takes his own life at 43 due to a traumatic brain injury suffered while playing in the NFL. And when a terrorist group rams two planes filled with gas into the World Trade Center and into heart of New York City and America – trial lawyers are there to protect the public and our Democracy.

Trial Lawyers Protect Our Democracy 

Many in positions of power do not like the scrutiny that litigation brings. These powerful interests seek to close the doors of the justice system to the public. They want to dismantle a legal system that is the envy of the world.– David S. Casey
