Three Beasley Allen lawyers were honored at the annual meeting of the American Association for Justice (AAJ) for their “outstanding performance in the profession of law.”
Gibson Vance was selected as a 2016 recipient of the AAJ Wiedemann & Wysocki Award. This award is presented annually to lawyers who demonstrate a deep commitment to the highest standards and who are passionately committed to the principles of the civil justice system and the mission of AAJ – to promote a fair and effective justice system and to support the work of lawyers in their “efforts to ensure that 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.” Gibson has been very active on the national level and has done an outstanding job.
Danielle Mason, who is in our Mass Torts Section, was selected as a 2016 recipient of the AAJ F. Scott Baldwin Award. The award was established to honor and recognize F. Scott Baldwin of Marshall, Texas, a world-renowned trial lawyer, whose efforts have produced outstanding awards for injured victims and their families. The award is presented in recognition of the legendary degree of excellence and compassion that Scott Baldwin has brought to the profession and the significant time he has invested in training, preparing and encouraging lawyers to the profession of trial law.
I was honored to receive the 2016 AAJ Tonahill Award. The award is presented in recognition of outstanding and dedicated service to and support of consumers and the trial bar. The Tonahill Award is named in honor of Joe Tonahill, a respected defender of the civil justice system.
The awards were presented during the AAJ Annual Convention in Los Angeles on July 23. Beasley Allen Managing Attorney Tom Methvin had this to say about the awards:
At Beasley Allen we encourage our attorneys to give back – to their community and also to the service of the legal profession and the civil justice system as a whole. Jere, Gibson and Danielle are deserving of these awards. I am proud to know that my law partners’ dedication to and love of the judicial system has been recognized by such a prestigious organization.
