"Civil Justice Attorneys"

The Fulton County (Ga.) Daily Report has a small piece about a lawyer changing firms in Atlanta. What's out of the ordinary is that the firm's new business cards will identify the lawyers as "civil justice attorneys" instead of "trial lawyers," following ATLA's name change to the American Association for Justice. "Civil justice attorney better defines what we dol. Our goal is not to get to trial. It is to obtain full, fair and just compensation for injured people and their families." A Trial Lawyer by Any Other Name ..., Fulton County Daily Report (, Dec. 29, 2006.

Although the American Trial Lawyers Association voted on the name change last summer (see earlier posts here, here, and here, it only made the change official this month (letter, Dec. 5).
