MADISON, WI - Wisconsin Association for Justice (WAJ) members elected a new president and other officers Friday at the organization’s Annual Meeting in Milwaukee. Milwaukee Attorney Jeffrey A. Pitman will lead the statewide lawyers organization in 2013.
“Our civil justice system must not only be protected, but strengthened. The constitutional right to a jury trial is important to all citizens,” Pitman said. “I am honored by the trust and confidence of my peers in allowing me to lead WAJ.”
Pitman is a shareholder in Pitman, Kyle, Sicula and Dentice, S.C., with offices in Milwaukee and Watertown, and specializes in representing people with serious injuries and those that have suffered nursing home abuse and neglect. He has been in practice since 1990.
WAJ has a statewide, voluntary membership with an office in Madison. Also elected to WAJ leadership are:

The mission of the Wisconsin Association of Justice is to promote a fair and effective justice system - one that ensures just for all, not just a priviledged few.
