At Sam C. Mitchell & Associates, advocating for the wrongfully injured is what we do best; and we’ve been doing it since 1968! Now, half a century later, we are active, well-respected members of our community, both at home and in the legal field at large. No better representation of this exists than our current involvement with the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association (ITLA), where our very own Attorney Lance Brown currently serves on the Board of Managers.
Established in 1952, the ITLA is now a 2,000+ member organization comprised of attorneys throughout the state. Members specialize in the representation of injured consumers and workers, helping to protect against the unethical and immoral tactics used by too many powerful insurance companies across the nation. Attorney Lance Brown, along with his fellow board members, strive to uphold and exemplify the organization’s founding principles, which can be paraphrased as:
- Maintaining the highest standards of professional ethics at both the bench and bar;
- Upholding the foundational tenets of the U.S. Constitution, and the State of Illinois;
- Advocating for the rights of the wrongfully injured;
- Protecting a person’s right to trial by jury;
- Promoting the administration of justice; and
- Educating peers on the art of advocacy.
We are proud to stand next to an attorney like Lance Brown, who is committed to protecting the interests of those who are up against large corporations and need a faithful advocate on their side. As we continue to carry out our own mission of providing fierce, aggressive representation in the face of adversity, we feel confident knowing our goals are aligned with those of the ITLA.
Sam C. Mitchell & Associates: 100+ Years of Combined Experience
Last week, Attorneys Lance Brown and Matthew Caraway headed to St. Louis to attend a shotgun seminar hosted by the ITLA, where we gained invaluable knowledge that can be used to benefit our clients in the future. Furthermore, our entire team will continue to attend and learn from these types of events, as we are always working to improve our skillset and find new, innovative ways to represent our clients.
If you were seriously injured in an accident, or you know someone who was, contact our team of personal injury lawyers for help. Throughout Southern and Central Illinois, we are known for our compassionate representation and desire to win for our clients. We are ready to help you next.
