Girardi | Keese Attorney Amy Fisch Solomon Honored with 'Champions of Justice' Award for 2015

Honoring the Legal Profession's Finest Practitioners

Loyola Law School started its Civil Justice Program in 2005, which honors two top attorneys as "Champions of Justice" each year.

As program directors and law professors Anne Bloom and John T. Nockleby write, "The list of past honorees reads like a who's who list of the Southern California trial bar."

It's certainly true that Amy is in good company.

What 'Champions of Justice' Means

"The awards are designed to honor those who make significant contributions to the civil justice system," according to Loyola Law School. "Honorees' careers are marked by professional excellence, technical proficiency and uncompromising integrity."

As a Leader in Personal Injury & Products Liability...

To think of Amy's legal career calls to mind exactly those terms: professional excellence, technical proficiency, and uncompromising integrity.

Amy joined the California bar in 1989. Over more than 20 years in practice, Amy has firmly established herself as a leader in her main areas of focus - products liability and personal injury - in which she has achieved several multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements for her clients. One example (among many) is a $35M confidential settlement for a grievously injured client.

But Amy's leadership does not end with stellar verdicts and settlements. It extends out into the broader community and the justice system as a whole. Through her work as a trial attorney, Amy often forces companies to fix dangerous products and change their policies. This helps to prevent other people from being seriously injured or worse.

As a Mentor to Young Lawyers and Students...

As demanding as the job of a trial lawyer can be, Amy devotes time to mentoring others - from other lawyers in the Girardi | Keese firm to law students, undergraduates, and high school students. This is a big part of what makes a Champion of Justice. Mentoring other attorneys and law students helps to ensure that those who are just starting out in their legal careers, or who are in their first few years of practice, learn how to represent clients the right way.

As a Friend to Clients and Their Families...

Part of representing clients the "right" way means genuine care and warmth. Injured people and their families, as well as the families of those who lost their lives, suffer greatly. Amy truly cares for her clients. It shows in the personal relationships Amy builds with many of her clients as she works alongside them to rebuild their lives.

Toward a More Perfect System of Justice

"With lifetimes of service, striving to hold those accountable who are responsible, they inspire us to imagine a more perfect system of justice. They are defenders of the Constitution, guardians of our liberty, advocates of just causes (no matter how unpopular), protectors of the powerless and wise counselors in our society. They are public servants, unafraid of controversial cases. These are attorneys of undisputed stature. They are, in the broadest sense of the words, Champions of Justice."
