The Law Firm for Truck Safety Attorney, Rena Leizerman, was awarded the American Association for Justice (AAJ) Trucking Litigation Group’s Robert W. Munley Award on Wednesday, July 19 during the summer AAJ Convention.
Formerly known as the Chairman’s Award, the prestigious Munley award is presented to truck crash attorneys who demonstrate outstanding work educating other lawyers on trucking law matters and contributing to the improvement of highway safety through legal work and advocacy.
Ms. Leizerman has received many prestigious awards for her exceptional work in truck crash litigation. Most recently, her outstanding work was recognized and honored by the National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA) with their semi-annual President’s Award.
Ms. Leizerman also serves as counsel to Allen Miller in the high-profile Miller v. C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc. case. The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision—to deny review of the firm’s victory in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, preserving the rights of truck crash victims to seek justice and compensation against transportation brokers and truck companies—was due in large part to Ms. Leizerman’s efforts.
