Oregon personal injury lawyer Aaron DeShaw attended the American Association for Justice annual winter convention in Florida last week. DeShaw is one of few Oregon personal injury lawyers who attended the conference. The conference is an important opportunity for lawyers to learn about the most recent developments in a wide variety of legal cases, and medical and scientific research on the topic of their practice.
The AAJ Annual Winter Conference brings together 2,000 of the nation’s leading personal injury lawyers, who handle cases involving traumatic injuries, medical malpractice, defective products, injuries from dangerous drugs, and much more. The conference also features important resources for lawyers to improve case handling, and law firm operations. While at the conference, DeShaw reviewed new technology for use in trial, as well as new imaging methods for brain injury and spinal injury cases.
Lectures by experts on jury bias, trial methods and trucking cases. During the session, DeShaw talked to several friends including leading trucking lawyers Joe Fried and Morgan Adams, fellow brain injury lawyer Bruce Stern and Tom Metier, business litigator and FRCP 30(b)(6) deposition specialist Mark Kosieradzki, jury bias pioneers Greg Cusimano and David Wenner, AAJ President and Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame inductee Lisa Blue, and many more. DeShaw’s strong relationships with the nation’s leading lawyers allows our firm to hire national co-counsel in cases where lawyers with specialty practice can assist our clients.
DeShaw is one of a small number of Oregon and Washington personal injury lawyers that belong to the American Association for Justice, and one of a handful who regularly attend the national conferences. This is done to ensure that people represented at our firm get the advantage of the most recent advanced in legal representation.
In addition to AAJ membership, DeShaw is a members of the American Association for Justice Brain Injury Litigation Group and receives information on new developments in brain injury research on a daily basis. The group is limited to a small number of attorneys who primarily handle traumatic brain injury cases.
