"On behalf of the Paralegal Division of AAJ, I would like to personally thank Advocate Capital, Inc. for sponsoring the 2013 AAJ Paralegal of the Year award. This prestigious award is awarded to a paralegal that has consistently demonstrated knowledge of the law, perseverance in her cases and to her attorneys' clients, superior paralegal skills and whose commitment and overall attitude is an inspiration to other paralegals," commented Daphne Grier, Paralegal Affiliates Chair for the American Association for Justice. She continued, "Advocate Capital, Inc. has generously agreed to sponsor the winning paralegal with airfare, hotel and conference fees to attend the annual convention in San Francisco in July and to participate in the vast wealth of educational and networking opportunities that are always available at the annual convention. We sincerely appreciate Advocate Capital, Inc. for their continuing support of the Paralegal Division of AAJ, and for recognizing paralegals as an integral part of the trial attorney team."
"AAJ does important work and so do paralegals! We are so pleased to be able to participate with AAJ on this important award," commented Advocate's President and Chief Executive Officer, Michael J. Swanson. "Paralegals perform crucial work in helping their law firms get justice on their clients' behalf. We hope that this award will help to bring well deserved attention to the crucial role that paralegals play in our civil justice system."
All award candidates are to be nominated by an AAJ Attorney Member or by another AAJ Paralegal Affiliate. To be considered, candidates must have demonstrated their value as members of a legal services team, shown dedication to the legal profession, and shown dedication to AAJ's mission:
"To promote a fair and effective justice system — and to support the work of attorneys in their efforts to ensure any person who is injured by the misconduct or negligence of others can obtain justice in America's courtrooms, even when taking on the most powerful interests."
The winner of the 2013 Advocate Capital, Inc. / AAJ Paralegal of the Year Award (to be announced later) will be treated to free airfare, hotel, and registration to AAJ's 2013 Annual Convention in San Francisco, California.
