The ad takes up a full back page in today’s New York Law Journal. And it is a thank you from the New York State Trial Lawyers Association to the almost 150 members of the organization that traveled to Albany to lobby the legislature last week to help preserve the civil justice system and increase judicial salaries. NYSTLA, for those that don’t know, is the preeminent trial lawyers group in New York.
So the questions are:
- If you have an attorney handling a personal injury matter, is the name of your lawyer on the list? Or at least someone from his/her firm?
- And if not, did s/he attend last year or the year before?
- Is s/he actively working in some way to preserve the civil justice system?
- And if they have never done anything in this regard, why not?

A big thank you to the folks at NYSTLA for their organizational skills in getting us in to meetings with our legislators. It was a job well done.
