American Association for Justice Announces Anthony Tarricone as President for 2009-2010
Washington, DC—During the American Association for Justice (AAJ) annual convention, the world’s largest trial bar announced Anthony Tarricone as President for 2009-2010. As a top civil justice attorney, Tarricone will lead the organization’s fight to ensure every American can seek justice through our courts.
“To be the president of an organization like the American Association for Justice is an honor and a great responsibility,” Tarricone said. “I look forward to furthering AAJ’s efforts to restore balance to the civil justice system, on behalf of those who have been injured or mistreated. It is important to ensure that all Americans have a fair chance to receive justice.”
“As President-elect for the past year Anthony has worked with me on everything AAJ has done to restore civil justice rights,” said Les Weisbrod, outgoing president and partner at Miller, Curtis & Weisbrod in Dallas, Texas. “Anthony is one of the best prepared trial lawyers to ever become President of our association. He will be very successful in all his endeavors to advance our mission.”
A managing partner at Kreindler & Kreindler LLP’s office in Boston, Mass., Tarricone represents individuals who have experienced serious injury or death. His areas of practice include aviation, product liability, medical negligence, and other complex personal injury and death cases. Tarricone has fought to ensure that individuals have meaningful legal remedies in state and federal courts when they are harmed by the negligence of others.
Tarricone has practiced law for 30 years and held numerous leadership positions within AAJ. He has served as president of the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys, Parliamentarian, Treasurer, and Secretary as well as serving on the Board of Governors. Among his honors are The Best Trial Lawyers in America Award and AAJ’s President Award. Most recently he has served as AAJ’s president-elect.
Tarricone attended Suffolk University Law School where he served as Note Editor of the Law Review and graduated first in his class. After graduation he served as law clerk to the Justices of the Superior Court before entering private practice.
