Trial Guides Year End Message for 2012
On August 16, 1946, a group of nine plaintiffs’ lawyers met in Portland, Oregon at the Heathman Hotel, and formed the first national organization for trial lawyers, called the National Association of Claimants’ Compensation Attorneys (NACCA). NACCA went on to become the Association of Trial Lawyers of America (ATLA®), and later the American Association for Justice (AAJ).
