What We Do

The mission of the American Association for Justice, formerly the Association of Trial Lawyers of America (ATLA®), is to promote a fair and effective justice system and to support the work of attorneys in their efforts to ensure that any person who is injured by the misconduct or negligence of others can obtain justice in America’s courtrooms, even when taking on the most powerful interests. AAJ is the world’s largest trial bar, providing trial attorneys with information, professional support and a nationwide network that enables them to most effectively and expertly represent clients.

Our members are trial attorneys who are committed to promoting safety and corporate accountability, advocating for a balanced civil justice system, improving our communities and educating lawyers to provide excellent advocacy for their clients.
