Maria Diamond Receives 2018 AAJ Award

Maria Diamond has been named a recipient of the Wiedemann & Wysocki Award by the American Association for Justice (AAJ). AAJ presents the award annually to AAJ members who have demonstrated exceptional commitment to protecting the civil justice system through political outreach efforts and supporting AAJ’s mission: “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.”

““Maria is such an impressive professional and wonderful individual. She exceeded every single expectation inside and outside the courtroom. During my trial she was faced with a biased and disgruntled jury who had already decided against my case before it even started; but this never hindered Maria. She never gave up on me, even when the jury denied me any compensation. She pushed back and won a new trial, forcing the insurance company to finally offer me a favorable settlement. Her drive to do the best, her passion and dedication for her clients, her overall impressiveness is what sets her apart from everyone else. I appreciate Maria, and I am more grateful than she will ever know. She is one of a kind.” B. Morrison
