CAALA Vegas 2018 – The Nation’s Largest Trial Lawyer Convention
Unsafe products, bad medicine, shady business practices, negligent corporate conduct without scruples…it’s a sad-but-true fact of life that not every product and purveyor is 100% reliable. When consumers are wronged by practitioners who engage in unethical practices or with a purchase that’s not what was promised, it’s nice to know that there’s a vital segment of the legal community to help fight back.
Consumer Attorneys focus solely on the protection of ordinary consumers from those who try to take advantage or simply get away with nefarious products and/or services. In response, Southern California is home to the nation’s largest local association of plaintiffs’ attorneys, the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles (CAALA). It’s a powerful group of advocates united in one purpose: to protect victim’s rights with equal access to justice.
On Labor Day weekend, the CAALA 36th Annual Las Vegas Convention takes place. Over 2,000 visitors are expected to attend, including attorneys, law firm staff, trial lawyers, and legal consultants. Besides vendor exhibits and product demonstrations, the goal is to give attendees the latest educational advantages, networking sessions, and brainstorming opportunities…covering crucial areas from insurance and medical services to publishing and production.
Once finished, it’s back to the firm and business as usual, only with a sharper edge in a legal area that offers a valuable benefit to our society-at-large.
Also valuable inside each firm’s walls? New Acrylic Sign Holders and dynamic new Name Plate Holders in modern, cutting edge designs.
Cubicle Name Plate Holders are also in especially high demand right now. Colored borders have been incorporated to deliver a clear view and sharper focus on 8-1/2” x 2-1/2” inserts. Countertop and desktop Name Plates in slant-back clear, glass green, and Executive Series designs are also gaining popularity for blending function, style, and a nice complement to the décor.
By the way, did you hear about the case of the runaway hit-and-run cow in Sacramento County? Indeed, an escaped cow charged a 70-year old neighbor woman “at full speed from approximately 300 feet away.” The plaintiff did recover however, and in Paynter v Romano this past January, a confidential settlement was reached as the result of a “high/low verdict.”
