Nationally recognized attorney Jim Vititoe has led the way in setting a new membership record for the American Association of Justice (AAJ). As a result, Vititoe recently received the American Association of Justice (AAJ) "Above and Beyond Award" at the AAJ Annual Convention that took place in Baltimore, MD in July.
The Above and Beyond Award is given to individuals who truly go the extra mile to assist the American Association for Justice in their mission to preserve the civil justice system.
"I am honored to have received the Above and Beyond Award and to have been recognized by my peers for my efforts with AAJ," said Vititoe. "I believe in the mission and the leadership of the organization and will continue to do everything I can to help the organization grow."
With the help of Vititoe's strong recruiting efforts, AAJ has reached its goal of 20,000 members, and California will be the first state to have 10 board members.
