TLC: Trial Lawyers Care
Trial lawyers moved swiftly to help those whose lives were devastated by the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Through the Trial Lawyers Care program, more than 1,000 volunteer attorneys provided pro bono legal services to victims who filed claims with the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund.
