National Advocates for the Civil Justice System

The American Association for Justice (AAJ) works to make sure people have a fair chance to receive justice through the legal system when they are injured by the negligence or misconduct of others – even when it means taking on the most powerful corporations.

Attorneys who join AAJ are part of an effective team actively fighting to preserve the rights of people to seek justice in the courts.

AAJ is the only national plaintiff lawyer association working as an advocate for trial attorneys and their clients on a broad range of issues, using lobbying, litigation, and public education to defend the civil justice system. We continually and effectively block attempts in Congress to preempt state civil justice laws, and play a vital role in protecting clients’ rights as they come under attack from insurance, drug, and oil industries and other large corporations that dominate the political process.
