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.”

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 an AAJ assignment when they died in a tragic plane crash. Recipients of the award have carried on their legacy through extraordinary leadership and contributions.

Maria will be honored at the AAJ annual convention in Denver on July 9, 2018. She is an unprecedented six-time recipient of the award, receiving it for the first time in 2004. “I am deeply honored to be recognized by AAJ and my fellow trial lawyers,” Maria says. “This award reflects my long-time efforts to obtain justice for my clients and to protect and defend the civil justice system.”

““I am so grateful to Maria for the superior work she did representing my husband and me in our medical malpractice case. Not only was she extremely competent as our attorney, she amazed us with her ability to keep a cool head during intense depositions by opposing counsel. Maria’s excellent negotiation skills enabled us to settle our case before going to trial. And her knowledge and skills made a difficult and emotional process much easier to handle. Maria was supportive every step of the way, and for that we are truly grateful. We wouldn’t hesitate for a second to recommend her to family and friends.” Karen and George Sickel
