Gibbs Law Group LLP partner A.J. de Bartolomeo recently moderated a panel at the annual convention of the American Association for Justice titled, “Becoming a Better Advocate by Recognizing and Overcoming Stressors with Mindfulness and Meditation.” Panel topics and discussion instructed attorneys on decreasing stress to improve focus and performance, redefining success, combating compassion fatigue, and using self-awareness to improve relationships with clients and colleagues.
Connecting Attorneys for the Promotion of Justice
The American Association for Justice (AAJ) is the largest association of trial attorneys in the world. The AAJ seeks to promote fair and effective administration of the law by providing trial lawyers with a professional network, information, and support as they work to provide the best representation to their clients.
This year’s AAJ convention was held in Montreal, Quebec, and featured other speakers and panels concerning current litigation, such as the Lumber Liquidators case, transvaginal mesh lawsuits, Risperdal litigation, and testosterone therapy lawsuits. Gibbs Law Group partners Eric Gibbs and Amy Zeman were also invited to speak at the convention.
