This book is the culmination of over twenty years of academic research on the evolution of tort law in Texas and how tort "reform" has affected the plaintiffs' practice and access to justice in tort cases in Texas. Stephen Daniels and Joanne Martin capture the actual impact of the decades long attack by corporate and insurance interests on the civil justice system - and they tell the story in a very readable and interesting manner. The book should be a must-read for plaintiffs' lawyers not only in Texas, but across the nation. Order your copy here.
“There’s been a lot of talk about the Texas Trial Lawyers Association’s mission lately, with several iterations of lengthy wording and lofty statements. Syntax, length and style aside, we believe TTLA’s mission is best stated as Good Laws and Good Lawyers: standing up for Good Laws in the legislative and public arena and working together to continue being the Good Lawyers our clients deserve.” Mike Guajardo, TTLA Immediate Past President.
