We are proud supporters of the Public Justice Foundation here at Brayton Purcell LLP. Not only was our founding partner, Alan Brayton, selected as the Champion of Justice by the foundation in 2013, he also has served as the president of the organization from 2006 to 2007.
The Public Justice Foundation is America's public interest law firm. Through creative litigation, public education, and innovative work with the broader public interest community, they:
- protect people and the environment;
- hold the powerful accountable;
- challenge government, corporate, and individual wrongdoing;
- increase access to justice;
- combat threats to our justice system; and
- inspire lawyers and others to serve the public interest.
If you have read through some of our past blog posts or poked around our website, it shouldn't come as a surprise that we support the mission of Public Justice. That is why we are happy to congratulate the nominees for their Trial Lawyer of the Year award.
