Managing Partner Louis Cairo Elected President of The Society of Trial Lawyers

09-07-2106-trial-society-089GWC Injury Lawyers is very proud to announce that Louis C. Cairo, Managing Partner of the firm, has just been elected President of The Society of Trial Lawyers, replacing departing president Miguel Ruiz. The election ceremony took place at The Society’s luncheon on September 7, 2016.

In his remarks, Mr. Cairo thanked Mr. Ruiz for his sound leadership and expressed his gratitude for receiving this great honor. Mr. Cairo further remarked, “It is a great honor to be selected by my peers, both on the defense side who are my adversaries in litigation, and the plaintiff’s side, who are my competitors for business. What better compliment could one ever ask for to be selected by this esteemed group of fine trial lawyers?”

Founded in 1934, The Society of Trial Lawyers is an elite organization of Chicago’s top trial attorneys. It aims to foster fraternity among trial lawyers and to promote closer relationships between trial lawyers and the judiciary to further their common interests in the jury trial system.

Membership is by invitation only, and is restricted to Illinois lawyers who have engaged in trial practice for at least ten years prior to their nomination and who meet the high standards and criteria of The Society.

As a Privileged Member with more than fifteen years in good standing, Mr. Cairo has served The Society of Trial Lawyers in numerous capacities, most recently as Vice President.

Also featured at the luncheon was Laura Caldwell, a former trial attorney and current law professor and author, who spoke about Life After Innocence, an organization she founded that is dedicated to helping the recently exonerated – those who have been wrongfully convicted and later proven innocent – transition back into society.
