What is the Pennsylvania Association of Justice?

In turn, the PAJ’s mission is to promote a fair and effective justice system. The PAJ supports attorneys as they work to ensure that any person who has been injured as a result of negligence and misconduct can obtain justice within Pennsylvania’s courtrooms. 

David Tyler, the Executive Director of the PAJ said the following about Mr. Lagnese’s new role: “We are excited to see Paul’s name etched into the list of Pennsylvania’s most prominent attorney leaders who have served as President of PAJ. Paul is known as a fierce and respected trial attorney. His leadership and experience at the helm of our organization will strengthen our ability to fight against corporate attacks on the rights of the people of this Commonwealth.” 

When asked about his newly elected position. Mr. Lagnese said, “I am humbled and honored to be able to lead the nearly 2000 members of PAJ who go to work every day to help people who have been injured by the carelessness of others. Rest assured over the next year, I will be working tirelessly with my fellow officers, PAJ lobbyists, staff and membership to insure that all citizens of Pennsylvania will continue to have an unfettered right to civil justice without restrictions on jury trials, caps on damages and immunity for wrongdoers.”
