The TTLA Family
TTLA is comprised of members with a shared vision. We believe that everyone deserves access to our courts and no one is above accountability. We hold protection of the 7th Amendment’s right to trial by jury as a sacred trust.
Our membership is an exclusive group of plaintiff’s attorneys who are committed to serving their clients and making our state better, safer, and healthier place to live and work. Our members have access to cutting-edge tools, resources, and education opportunities, as well as the most innovative, interactive network of trial lawyers in the state. Plus, TTLA’s legislative advocacy and political involvement puts our members at the center of the action.
