AAJ President Named Top 100 Most Influential Lawyers in America
Mary Alice McLarty, AAJ’s president, has been honored by The National Law Journal as one of the 100 most influential lawyers in America. The National Law Journal writes:
Mary Alice McLarty's election last year as president of the American Association Justice made her Public Enemy No. 1 to the forces of "tort reform"—and the prime defender of the right to seek redress in court. The focus for now is in "Take Justice Back," an online campaign targeting government and corporate accountability for preventable medical errors, generic drug labels and more. McLarty, 66, practices law at McLarty Pope in Dallas, is an op-ed contributor to CNN and is frequently quoted in the news media. And she didn't even attend law school or obtain her law license until her mid-30s. How's that for a role model?
Furthermore, she is noted for her political clout. This is good news for consumers, injured patients and the elderly who have a top advocate and spokesperson calling for corporate accountability through the civil justice system.
A number of additional AAJ members were included on the list: Steve Berman, Max Berger, AAJ Vice President Lisa Blue, Thomas Boggs Jr., Elizabeth Cabraser and Thomas Girardi.
