Austin Injury Lawyer Newly Elected As President of Capital Area Trial Lawyers Association (CATLA)
Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) June 12, 2013 – Central Texas’ largest assemblage of plaintiff’s personal injury lawyers, has elected a new president.
“I’m honored to have been elected as president of CATLA,” said Brooks Schuelke, a plaintiff’s Austin personal injury lawyer. “The attorneys in this group are driven every single day to ensure their clients are not taken advantage of by corporate wrongdoers or insurance companies. Justice is not just a concept to them. It is a personal mission.”
CATLA’s dedicated mission is to work together to effectively represent clients injured by the negligence of others, and to make certain the public has fair and equitable access to the courts and jury system. With over two hundred attorneys strong, this group is a major force to be reckoned with.
“As a group that works to level the playing field and obtain justice and equity, we do not back down from any of the increasing number of obstacles placed in the way of obtaining justice as a result of changes to laws by the legislature and the courts,” Schuelke added. “Our clients deserve effective, efficient and reasonably priced legal counsel that achieves their goals at the end of their day in court.” CATLA is the epitome of a group with the power to take action to protect plaintiff’s legal rights.
The group does not just meet for monthly get togethers, although that is part of their program. They pursue their education at every opportunity. Various speakers are brought in to update members on the latest changes in the law that affect their clients in various areas. “This valuable resource keeps CATLA’s members up-to-date with the most recent changes in the law, court decisions and what the legislature is contemplating in terms of new laws. This is in addition to our continuing legal education courses, presented annually,” indicated Schuelke.
Clients seeking experienced and well-trained legal counsel are in good hands with attorneys who are recognized members of CATLA.
