I am proud to have been selected to be a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA). ABOTA is a national organization of trial lawyers and judges committed to educating the public of the importance of preserving our constitutional right under the Seventh Amendment to a trial by jury.
Thomas Jefferson wrote: “I consider trial by jury as the only anchor ever yet imagined by man, by which a government can be held to the principles of its constitution”.
The dark corporate forces that seek to take away this fundamental right are hidden behind words like “tort reform”, “caps on damages” and “binding arbitration”. If you or someone you love and care about is injured through the carelessness of another, you could lose the right to have a jury determine what money you are entitled to get to make up for the harm to you and your family.
