GTLA presents this award to the client of a GTLA member during the Annual Convention each year. Our goal is to recognize a client whose pursuit of justice helped the greater good. It's not about the size of the verdict, or even a victory. It's about courage the client showed against great odds and powerful opponents. Think about your clients and nominate one if you feel appropriate. Nominations need to be sent directly to Emily Hurt at ehurt@gtla.org.
