As mentioned last month, Gibson Vance, one of the lawyers in our firm, has been elected President-Elect of the American Association for Justice. His selection was announced at the organization’s annual convention. AAJ is dedicated to preserving the civil justice system and making sure that powerful special interests are held accountable when they engage in misconduct or wrongdoing. As an executive officer of AAJ, Gibson will serve in an important position of leadership in the organization’s effort to educate the public – as well as legislators on both the state and national levels – on issues of critical importance to consumers and our nation’s judicial system.
In our firm, Gibson specializes in personal injury litigation and consumer fraud cases. He has been active in the Montgomery County Bar Association, serving as its President in 2005. He also served recently as President of the Montgomery County Trial Lawyers Association and the Alabama Civil Justice Foundation. The Pike County, Alabama native also served in 2008 as President of the Alabama Association for Justice. Gibson was recently appointed to the Alabama Judicial Compensation Committee by Alabama’s Lt. Governor, Jim Folsom.
Gibson has been active in the American Association for Justice for a number of years, and has served on several key committees within the organization, including the National Finance Committee, Public Affairs Committee, Budget Committee and Membership Oversight Committee. He was recently presented the Joe Tonahill award by AAJ’s New Lawyers Division for his outstanding service to the civil justice system. Gibson had this to say about his election:
It is a great honor to serve an organization of trial attorneys that represents individuals who have been injured by the misconduct and negligence of others. It’s our mission to ensure that everyone can get justice in the courtroom, no matter how small their stature and how powerful the interest they may be taking on.
We are extremely pleased to have Gibson so actively involved in organizations at both the state and national levels that are dedicated to serving the needs of people. As you may know, AAJ is the world’s largest trial bar. You can visit www.justice.org for more information.
