Los Angeles, December 29, 2014 – – Battles are waged every day in countless forms. Troops struggle through hand-to-hand combat on the ground, families fight against the crushing weight of poverty and attorneys strive for justice against a barrage of enemy fire to help victims find closure. Armed with an array of knowledge and experience, every exceptional attorney is better suited to serve their clients.
Attorney Diane Marger Moore has fought through the trenches of the justice system while also dedicating time to her colleagues as a teacher and mentor to better their understanding of the law. This summer, she accepted a position as a committee member with the American Association for Justice’s (AAJ) Public Education Committee. The group’s purpose is to advise the AAJ membership on initiatives created to enhance understanding and appreciation of America’s civil justice system. They place specific emphasis on preserving individual rights, the right to trial by jury, and consumer protection. The AAJ is the world’s largest trial bar and provides services to better educate attorneys through collaboration amongst their members.
As an advocate for justice, Diane believes, “We as lawyers are the frontline for protecting American’s liberties and ensuring that justice prevails. While the realities of our system of justice are important, the public’s perception of justice and the role that lawyers play in that system is equally important — especially in light of current events.” Thus, the AAJ’s Public Education Committee plays a vital role by preserving those values and communicating them to the bar and the public.
