In early April, The American Association for Justice held a forum at American University Washington College of Law. The panel was made up of three nationally recognized speakers: Karen E. Evans of the Cochran Firm, Drew LaFramboise of Ashcraft & Gerel, and our own Christopher T. Nace of Paulson & Nace, PLLC.
Inspiring tomorrow’s litigators, today
The panel speakers spoke to an audience of law school students about what life as one of D.C.’s top plaintiff’s trial lawyers is really like. The speakers talked about various topics from sharing resume secrets, and how to navigate the tough legal market to professional decorum. One of the topics was “Everything Else I Wish I Knew Before Graduating Law School,” which was quite valuable to those students whose heads are full of questions about what the future might bring. Each panelist was able to share why they chose to become trial lawyers and why they became members of the American Association for Justice.
Attorney Nace was happy to take the time to serve on the panel and share his passion for his work and for the clients with whom he has the privilege of working every day. He shared stories about the clients he works with and how rewarding it is to be able to help people. Attorney Nace also spoke about his work with AAJ, his role as a member of the Board of Governors as well as some of his past roles as chair of the New Lawyers Division, the Membership Oversight Committee and the other committees on which he serves.
