On July 17, 2022, after a contested election, Attorney Ingrid A. Halstrom was elected to be the next Secretary of the New Lawyer’s Division of the American Association for Justice (AAJ). AAJ is an international organization of civil plaintiff trial lawyers that has over 20,000 members throughout the United States and Canada. The New Lawyer’s Division of AAJ is made up of over 4,500 attorneys who are within their first 10 years of bar admission and makes up 20% of the total membership of AAJ. For over 70 years, AAJ has successfully defended Americans’ right to trial by jury and continues to fight every day to protect our practices, our clients’ rights, and our civil justice system. Attorney Ingrid Halstrom is thrilled to be able to help with that fight in her position as Secretary to the NLD.
