Robert L. Habush
Trial Lawyer of the Year Award

 

Robert L. Habush Trial Lawyer of the Year Award recognizes an individual who has demonstrated strong commitment to the goals for which the Wisconsin Association for Justice was established:

  • Promotion of the administration of justice for the public good
  • Upholding the honor and dignity of the profession of law
  • Upholding the right of trial by jury
  • Preserving and enhancing the rights of persons to have access to the Courts and our system of justice, and to afford everyone a full, fair and timely remedy for wrongs done

This award recognizes a trial lawyer who has shown exceptional dedication to these goals, and has upheld them in various ways, including handling a case involving a significant change in the law or a precedent-setting suit, by their support of WAJ through work in the WAJ organization, pro-bono or other volunteerism that benefited injured consumers, or efforts designed to improve and preserve the American civil justice system.
