Attorney Richard Golomb, of Golomb & Honik, P.C., was recently elected
to a second three-year term on the Association of Trial Lawyers of America’s
(ATLA) board of governors. Golomb received news of this prestigious re-election
at ATLA’s meeting in Boston in July 2004. In response to his re-election,
Golomb stated that “It’s a great pleasure to have the opportunity
to serve ATLA once again.”
ATLA is comprised of 60,000 trial lawyers from across the nation, as well
as Central and South America, Puerto Rico, and elsewhere. This group of
attorneys works hard to protect the rights of victims and consumers at
every level and participates in a wide array of pro-bono activities, especially
in the wake of 9/11. In November of 2004, Golomb was recognized by ATLA
with a citation of excellence.
Golomb worked as a part of ATLA’s Trial Lawyers Care project, which
is the largest pro-bono effort in the history of American jurisprudence.
He was one of more than 2,100 attorneys who participated in ATLA’s
effort to assist the families of 9/11 victims in collecting from the victim’s
compensation fund. In one such case that Golomb represented, he succeeded
in recovering a $1.5 million award.
According to Golomb, “Trial Lawyers Cares is a perfect example of
the good work ATLA does on behalf of victims. That’s one of the
big reasons that I am thrilled to be serving on ATLA’s board a second
time. The other reason is that this position helps me better serve our
clients at Golomb & Honik, P.C.”
