Rapoport Weisberg & Sims P.C. attorney and founding partner David Rapoport joined a distinguished group of trial lawyers from across the country at the annual American Association for Justice’s (AAJ) Leaders Forum Retreat May 18-20.
The American Association for Justice’s Leaders Forum was created in 2000 to ensure that every person has access to justice — even when up against the most powerful interests. This select group of Leaders Forum members helps AAJ protect the civil justice system by increasing financial resources for public relations, legislative advocacy and public education efforts on Capitol Hill and in the court of public opinion. The Leaders Forum is an instrumental part of the effort to reframe the debate about the civil justice system. It seeks to inform the public about the critical role that trial attorneys play in holding wrongdoers accountable for their actions.
