America’s Civil Justice System: Fighting for Justice and Holding Wrongdoers Accountable 

Justice belongs to us all.  That’s why we work hard to make sure any person who is injured by the misconduct and negligence of others can get justice in the courtroom, even when taking on the most powerful interests.  We are committed to strengthening the civil justice system so that deserving individuals can get justice and wrongdoers are held accountable.    

This is more important now than ever, because the drug and oil industries, big insurance companies and other large corporations dominate our political process – and people cannot depend on the political system to hold corporations accountable.  Insurance companies and big corporations can afford the best defense money can buy; civil justice attorneys level the playing field in the courtroom so that any person can get justice and hold a wrongdoer accountable.

Too often, insurance companies and corporate CEOs put profits ahead of the health and safety of the public.  When they do, the only place for many to get justice or hold wrongdoers accountable is in our courts.

We are committed to strengthening the civil justice system so that deserving individuals can get justice and wrongdoers are held accountable. We oppose efforts to weaken basic legal protections and further stack the deck against Americans.  All Americans benefit when the individuals attorneys represent have a fair chance to get justice through our civil justice system.
