Christine Spagnoli for AAJ Parliamentarian 2019
We have known and worked with Chris Spagnoli for decades. Over the past 25 years she has proven to be one of the best trial lawyers in the United States, with major courtroom experience and success. She has a history of successful leadership of three large trial lawyer associations, having served as President of CAALA (Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles), CAOC (Consumer Attorneys of California), and AIEG (Attorneys Information Exchange Group).
She has also been an AAJ activist for many years, having served on our board and many committees.
Most importantly, we have seen Chris in action as a thoughtful and astute advocate in the political and lobbying arena. When the General Motors/Chrysler bailout was working its way through Congress with overwhelming Democratic support, Chris provided extraordinary leadership in the campaign to retain compensation rights for injured victims and consumers – an effort that required raising over $1M and encouraging key members of congress to hold hearings that influenced the successful outcome.
Chris has proven record of accomplishment and leadership we can count on. Chris is also a modest person who is not one to boast about her many accomplishments and leadership skills – which is all the more reason we felt compelled to send this letter. Please join us in voting for Chris for AAJ Parliamentarian at the Annual Meeting this summer in San Diego.
