Since, 2014, I have served on the Board of Governors for the Washington State Association for Justice (WSAJ). This past week I was privileged to attend the final Board Meeting of the 2016-2017 year in Seattle, Washington and got to enjoy some beautiful Northwest sunshine with the other board members.
WSAJ is an organization with over 3,000 members that aims to “protect and promote a fair justice system and the right to trial by jury, and to ensure that any person who is harmed by the misconduct or negligence of others can obtain justice in America's courtrooms, even in actions against the most powerful interests.” We have written about WSAJ in the past. For example we authored a blog post when I was first appointed to the Board, when we had just finished a long day of lobbying in Olympia with other WSAJ members, and after our firm worked with WSAJ to organize a “Trial Lawyers Care” event to help construct homes here in town for Habitat for Humanity. These posts represent only a few of the many we've authored that mention the great work WSAJ does in and around our state to help protect the rights of those injured by the negligence or carelessness of others.
We at Schauermann Thayer continue to support WSAJ and work tirelessly to make sure our clients' rights, and the rights of those who will be injured in the future, are protected. We're honored to be a part of this important work.
