We are delighted to announce that Lieff Cabraser partner Mark P. Chalos, Managing Partner of the firm’s Nashville office, has officially been sworn in as President of the Tennessee Trial Lawyers’ Association (TTLA) after having previously served as President-Elect of the organization. Mark will serve as TTLA President for 2022-2023.
Mark’s swearing-in was conducted by Tennessee Supreme Court Justice Sharon G. Lee, who noted her confidence that Mark will “uphold the mission of the [TTLA] to help injured persons to seek redress in the courts.”
The Tennessee Trial Lawyers Association is a professional organization of member attorneys dedicated to upholding and defending the principles of the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Tennessee by way of trial by jury; advancing the science of the legal system; supporting advocacy and justice of the public good; and advancing the cause of those who experience personal harm or property damage. The Association seeks to encourage mutual support and cooperation among members of the bar, and to uphold and improve the adversary system and trial by jury in Tennessee. For over 55 years, TTLA has worked tirelessly to ensure that everyday citizens, Tennessee families, and small businesses are never deprived of their constitutional guarantee of access to justice.
