Has anyone put the whole package together as gracefully and (seemingly) effortlessly as Julie Braman Kane?
Great lawyer, partner, leader, mother, wife, successful professional and community leader, always polite and responsible, she probably even brakes for stray dogs:
My overarching goal is to do whatever needs to be done to protect victims' rights across the country. I'm president-elect during a presidential election year and a Senate election year. We will support candidates who will support the civil justice system. We also work to help people in Congress and in leadership positions understand the needs of the civil justice system. We spend a tremendous amount of time lobbying in Washington, D.C., and help all 50 state trial bars in any way we can.Ok let's just get it out there -- will you accept my hand in marriage?
You are a supporter of Hillary Clinton. Do you plan to take an active role in her campaign?
I will fundraise for her presidential campaign through the AAJ, and we will work toward her election. I also wrote a personal check for the maximum allowable amount.
In past years, the AAJ has focused on tort reform and limiting damage caps. Is that still the AAJ's primary mission?
Yes. I believe the most insidious type of tort reform right now is forced arbitration, which is being put in every consumer contract out there. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau recently put out a massive report on this, showing how forced arbitration is very one-sided and rigged against consumers.
Or just keep kicking butt like you've been doing for a couple decades.
