2022 Lifetime Achievement Award
Brenda S. Fulmer

Brenda has served on the AAJ Board of Governors for over a decade and held various leadership positions, including on the Executive Committee, Evergreen Fund Committee, PAC Board, Diversity and Inclusion Committee, and Litigation Group Leaders Council. She is a graduate of AAJ’s Diversity and Inclusion Leadership Academy which she now supports through a generous contribution from the Fulmer Family Foundation. Brenda serves on her firm’s executive committee and leads the firm’s dedicated mass tort unit. Over the past 26 years she has represented thousands of people in claims and individual actions filed in state and federal courts involving defective drugs, medical devices, and consumer products.

About the Award

The Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes an AAJ member of at least 20 years standing whose courtroom advocacy has, during a distinguished career, significantly advanced the rights of the wrongfully injured, and who by substantial service to AAJ and the trial bar, has significantly furthered the cause of justice and the mission of the Association.
