Bahe Cook Cantley & Nefzger PLC is proud to announce that this past weekend the firm was honored to host American Association for Justice (“AAJ”) President-Elect Mary Alice McLarty. Better known as “Mary Alice from Dallas” Ms. McLarty is a respected and talented trial attorney working in Texas who specializes primarily in catastrophic injuries involving Reflex Sympathetic Distrophy, a painful and debilitating disease caused by traumatic injury. More about her can be seen on the AAJ’s website here.
While in Louisville, Ms. McLarty spent time meeting with BCCN lawyers in the office during the day on Friday to discuss the importance of AAJ, the AAJ PAC, and other important facets of the organization. She also met privately with several BCCN partners, giving career advice and swapping war stories. After work was done, Ms. McLarty and several BCCN attorneys attended an AAJ cocktail reception at BCCN partner Shawn Cantley’s new bar, The Silver Dollar, followed by dinner and a night out on the town. Finally, on Saturday, Ms. McLarty generously donated her time and talent to assist in judging AAJ’s law school regional Mock Trial competition with several other BCCN attorneys. The competition was organized by BCCN partner Will Nefzfger with the assistance of BCCN associate Lauren Marley.
BCCN is extremely honored to have hosted Mary Alice, a true champion of justice. We would also encourage any attorney who is not yet a member to join and become involved in AAJ.
