For The Media

About WSAJ

We stand up in the courtroom and the halls of government for real people. We defend your Constitutional rights, including the right to have your day in court. We hold corporate and other powerful interests accountable. We are a community, creating and sharing resources for our members to secure justice.

Our membership: Nearly 2,400 attorneys and legal professionals in communities large and small around Washington State. As trial lawyers, we fight for justice for citizens every day in court. Our legislative team in Olympia is devoted to continuing the fight to ensure that citizens retain their civil justice rights.

WSAJ has a proud track record of fighting for the rights of people for the past 61 years. Formed in 1953 as the National Association of Claimants Compensation Attorneys - NACCA; it became the Washington State Trial Lawyers Association (WSTLA) in 1967 and the Washington State Association for Justice (WSAJ) in 2008.
