Friends of Justice 

Friends of Justice was launched in February 2003 for companies that want to contribute to AAJ's fight against tort "reform."

The Friends of Justice are staunch supporters of the civil justice system, and they stand beside you as you fight for the rights of your clients in the face of anti-consumer initiatives in Washington and in the states.
