The Los Angeles personal injury law firm of Carpenter, Zuckerman & Rowley understands the magnitude of the American Association for Justice (AAJ), a highly influential organization that has been dedicated to promoting a fair and effective justice system and supporting attorneys since 1946, and how important it is to have people of great knowledge and skill in charge of the organization. As such, we support Simona A. Farrise, Esq., LL.M founder of the Farrise Law Firm, in her bid for Vice President of AAJ.
From 2004 through 2012, Ms. Farrise has been selected for inclusion in Northern California Super Lawyers® and has received numerous rewards and recognitions throughout her career. Ms. Farrise received the Distinguished Alumnus Award of Golden Gate University School of Law in 2007 and has been recognized as one of the top 50 female lawyers in California.
If elected as Vice President, Ms. Farrise looks to strengthen and grow AAJ’s membership in order to be effectively mobile against attacks targeting hardworking citizens. AAJ’s membership has declined over the past decade and Ms. Farrise is dedicated to growing the organization’s members, bringing focus through leadership, and unifying all of the segments that make up the Association. Additionally, Ms. Farrise proposes instating an AAJ Member Bill of Rights that includes:
- “One member/one vote.” This would allow dues-paying members to vote in AAJ elections, whether or not they also pay the “poll” tax of registering for and traveling to the annual convention.
- Equal treatment, valuing time and talents equally with check writing.
- Unified leadership to integrate local, state, and national organizations.
To vote in the 2012 AAJ elections, you must sign up for or renew your AAJ Membership by June 27. Every vote counts and will help shape the future of the AAJ.
