The American Association for Justice (AAJ) is a national organization of lawyers devoted to promoting justice and fairness for injured persons, safeguarding victims’ rights — particularly the right to trial by jury — and strengthening the civil justice system. Partners Ira Sherman, Joseph Cammarata, and Allan
M. Siegel have all served as Past President of the Trial Lawyers Association of Metropolitan Washington, DC, which is a local affiliate of AAJ. In addition, Chaikin Sherman Cammarata Siegel P.C is a member of AAJ’s Leaders Forum.
Accordingly, it is with great pride that we announce that Mr. Siegel has been elected to serve on the Board of Governors of AAJ. AAJ’s Board of Governors is made up of some of the best trial lawyers in the country, whose experience is called upon to navigate and guide AAJ. This is the first time in the firm’s long history that any of our lawyers have been elected to serve on AAJ’s Board of Governors.
In addition, Mr. Siegel was elected as the Chairman of AAJ’s Bus Litigation Group at the AAJ Summer Convention that took place in Philadelphia in July, 2023. In that role he will be leading a group of lawyers committed to getting justice for clients who were involved in bus crashes. Mr. Siegel has successfully handled many bus crashes involving DC Metro buses and other public transit buses, as well as private charter buses, and school buses. Congratulations to Mr. Siegel for his election to these two positions.
