The American Association for Justice
The American Justice Association (AAJ) began in 1946 when a small group of plaintiffs' attorneys met in Portland, Oregon and decided to create a national organization to further the causes of plaintiff's lawyers across the United States. At the time, the organization was called the national Association for Claimants' Compensation Attorneys. Although the original group of attorneys strictly handled workers' compensation claims, the organization attracted personal injury lawyers as well. Eventually, the association included attorneys from almost every field of advocacy.
Over the years, the association adopted several names, eventually changing calling itself the American Association for Justice in 2006. Although it has been known by many titles, one thing about the AAJ has remained consistent throughout the years: its continued dedication to promoting an effective justice system. As members of AAJ, Clawson & Clawson, LLP also reflects these ideals and upholds the quality of legal service that AAJ promotes.
