This year marks the 10th Anniversary of 9/11 where our world changed forever. Since that tragic day, the legal community has pitched in – sometimes quietly advocating for victim’s families. On Lawyer2Lawyer, attorneys and co-hosts Bob Ambrogi and J. Craig Williams welcome Attorney Leo Boyle from the law firm, Meehan, Boyle, Black & Bogdanow and one of the founders of Trial Lawyers Care and Marilyn Berger executive producer, writer and co-director of the film, Out of the Ashes: 9/11, to look back at 9/11, discuss how lawyers got involved after the attacks, the legal issues that remain, the Victim’s Compensation Fund and how this tragedy has impacted and shaped the legal system.
2011 has been a year filled with devastating disasters from a record number of deadly tornadoes in the U.S., including Alabama, Missouri, and Massachusetts to the earthquake and tsunami that ravaged Fukushima, Japan. Hear attorneys and co-hosts Bob Ambrogi and J. Craig Williams on Lawyer2Lawyer talk with Attorney Randy J. Aliment, Chair-Elect of the American Bar Association’s Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Section (TIPS) and Attorney Dennis D. Palmer from the law firm Polsinelli Shughart out of Kansas City, Missouri, about the legal issues that victims can face, disaster preparedness and how lawyers deploy to help those affected.
