Trial lawyers and lawsuits have a precedence of exposing corporate corruption. On June 8th Public Justice presented the 2015 Trial Lawyer of the Year Awards – which go annually to lawyers whose pursuit of justice made the largest impact on public interest. Public Justice is America’s public interest law firm. The Trial Lawyers of the Year winners demonstrate trial lawyers holding corporations and irresponsible government officials responsible for abusing their power and violating the rights of ordinary Americans.
These summaries of their stories are just an example of the incredible work these teams did. Public Justice honors these lawyers because of their extraordinary work fighting injustice, taking great risks (trial lawyers don’t recover any fees unless they win), and accomplishing great things.
