As a group of legal professionals who strive to provide superior and balanced service to their clients, we are committed to the following:

  2. Anticipating and addressing, where possible, issues significant to the defense of civil matters and the civil justice system;
  3. Promoting among all lawyers involved in civil litigation the highest standards of professionalism, civility, and courtesy in the conduct of trials and related proceedings, while promoting an appreciation of the role of the defense lawyer;
  4. Encouraging and promoting better communication and relations between lawyers engaged in the defense of civil cases and the people, entities, and judges involved in civil litigation;
  5. Improving the civil justice system and the legal profession; and
  6. Developing collegiality and camaraderie among members of the organization.
