Maria Diamond Receives two AAJ Awards at Annual Convention

In July 2020, Maria Diamond received two awards from the American Association for Justice (AAJ) at their annual convention. For the seventh time, Maria received the Wiedemann & Wysocki Award, which recognizes members who have made outstanding efforts in support of AAJ’s Political Action Committee (PAC). The award is named in honor of Fritz Wiedemann and James Anthony Wysocki, two New Orleans-based attorneys and active AAJ members who were traveling on assignment to help AAJ when they died in a tragic plane crash. This award recognizes members who have carried on their legacy and who are passionately committed to the principles of the civil justice system and AAJ’s mission.

At the same convention, Maria also received the Above and Beyond Award, which recognizes AAJ members who have made exceptional contributions to sustain and strengthen the organization. As Washington State Association for Justice (WSAJ) board member Ian Bird said, “. . . Maria does an incredible job for AAJ and its mission.”

““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
