Levinson and Stefani founding partner Ken Levinson has been appointed to serve as the Illinois State Delegate for the American Association for Justice (AAJ), a designation that carries Illinois Trial Lawyers Association (ITLA) Board status. Levinson’s appointment is effective immediately and runs through 2018.
“Like so many attorneys, I have benefited a great deal from ITLA, AAJ, and their missions,” said Levinson. “It’s been a tremendous and important resource for trial lawyers when it comes to protecting our injured clients. I’m grateful for this opportunity to work more intimately with AAJ and ITLA.”
State delegates work on behalf of AAJ to raise awareness among new and existing trial attorneys about the organization. To date, AAJ has earned distinction as the world’s largest trial bar and a safeguard for victims’ rights, most notably the right to trial by jury. As part of his duties, Levinson will oversee institutional relations and work with board members to strengthen the wellbeing of both associations.
Levinson is the co-author of Litigating Major Automobile Injury and Death Cases, the newest reference litigation series published by AAJ Press/Thomson Reuters. He was listed in the Illinois Super Lawyers Top 100 in 2016, his second appearance on the list.
Levinson is the founding partner of Levinson and Stefani, a Chicago-based law firm offering client-first legal representation. The firm focuses on truck, auto and bus-related accidents, as well as child injury cases.
