Langdon & Emison partner Brett Emison is a recipient of the 2017 American Association for Justice Distinguished Service Award. Emison was honored at the AAJ Annual Convention in Boston, July 22-25, 2017.
The Distinguished Service Award recognizes members of the AAJ Board of Governors who during the past year have been of special assistance to the president of the association. Emison led regional fundraising efforts for AAJ’s 2017 Leaders Forum campaign by helping the association host an event in Kansas City, Mo.
“I’m honored to receive AAJ’s Distinguished Service Award, particularly when seeing the list of fellow recipients – all outstanding trial lawyers and AAJ members,” Emison said. “What makes AAJ such a valuable organization is the willingness of members – especially those on the board – to step up and lead the organization forward. I’m grateful for the tremendous work of others in AAJ and happy to do my small part.”
Emison began serving on the AAJ Board of Governors in 2016. He is also a member of the AAJ Leaders Forum and serves on AAJ’s Publications Committee; Political Action Committee (PAC) Board of Trustees and PAC Task Force; National Finance Council; and Voter Protection Committee. AAJ’s mission is to promote a fair and effective justice system and to support the work of attorneys in their efforts to ensure that any person who is injured by the misconduct or negligence of others can obtain justice in America’s courtrooms, even when taking on the most powerful interests.
