Golomb & Honik, P.C. is proud to announce that Richard Golomb, the
managing shareholder and founding partner of the firm, was recently elected
Secretary of the American Association for Justice (AAJ)—formerly
the Association of Trial Lawyers of America (ATLA). This organization
is comprised of 38,000 trial attorneys from across the globe whose mission
is to seek justice for all.
Mr. Golomb’s election puts him in line to serve as AAJ’s President
in 2012, which would make him the first President of AAJ from Pennsylvania
since David Shrager’s appointment in 1983. “To serve as the
first officer, and hopefully President, of ATLA/AAJ since [David Shrager]
served 25 years ago, is an honor and pleasure,” Mr. Golomb states.
His peers have explained that Golomb has a “quiet leadership style.”
He is also the past president of the Philadelphia Trial Lawyers Association,
a board member of the Pennsylvania Association for Justice, a member of
the AAJ Board of Governors, and a member of the Executive Committee for
AAJ. He also serves as a trustee of the Civil Justice Foundation and Roscoe
Pound Institute, as well as AAJ’s delegate to the Civil Trial Bar
Roundtable for the National Center for State Courts.
