Serving a one-year term through 2018
Founding partner Ken Levinson has been elected Chair of the American Association for Justice Motor Vehicle Section, serving a one-year term through 2018. This comes on the heels of the AAJ’s annual convention in Boston, which welcomes thousands of trial lawyers each year for a series of seminars and networking events designed to help attorneys when representing clients.
The Motor Vehicle Section of the AAJ addresses federal no-fault issues and focuses on auto collision cases, truck safety, highway design, low speed impact, soft tissue injuries and premises liability. The section is comprised of experienced trial lawyers whose practice focuses on truck litigation and personal injury.
As Chair, Ken will oversee its members and bylaws. He will lead efforts to change and/or modify existing policy as it relates to the section’s goals and objectives, work with members to organize webinars and other informational programs related to injury litigation, and serve as representative during other AAJ events. Ken was formerly the Chair of the AAJ’s Trucking Litigation Group Education Committee, and currently serves as the Illinois Trial Lawyer Association’s Illinois State Delegate to AAJ. Ken is also a Co-Chair of the Chicago Bar Association’s Solo/Small Firm Committee and is frequently invited to speak as a faculty member at various trial lawyer programs throughout the country.
The AAJ provides trial attorneys with information, professional support and a nationwide network that enables them to most effectively and expertly represent clients. The mission of the American Association for Justice is to promote a fair and effective justice system—and to support the work of attorneys in their efforts to ensure that any person who is injured by the misconduct or negligence of others can obtain justice in America’s courtrooms, even when taking on the most powerful interests.
