The organization is comprised of plaintiffs’ lawyers who have handled some of the biggest and most significant cases, righting wrongs and holding companies, corporations, and professionals accountable for their actions and faults. Inner Circle lawyers have done more to reshape policy in America than any other collective legal group, improving lives through every verdict obtained on behalf of injury victims. I look forward to serving as President of this incredible organization to continue these tractions.”
