“Love Your Lawyer Day” Honors Lawyers Across the Country


December 14, 2015

This year, the American Bar Association passed a resolution for the creation of "Love Your Lawyer Day." This day, designed to promote a positive and respected image of lawyers and their contributions to the community, was celebrated on November 6. It will be annually recognized on the first Friday in November. The idea originated from a legal marketer out of Florida. The ABA division also embraced the concept and so did the public at large. Local bar associations worked to get the word out about the new day honoring the profession.

LThe Vital Function of Lawyers in Our Society

Lawyers play an absolutely vital role in society. The origin of attorneys dates back all the way to ancient Athens, where the orators assisted their friends in pleading cases, though they could not accept money in return for some time. The profession continued to evolve and develop through the middle ages, when the title, "Esquire," was developed. Our modern society has seen the adoption of attorneys in a myriad of fields, where they serve the vital function of interpreting the complex laws and advocating on behalf of their clients.

The personal injury attorney is an essential advocate and protector of the rights of injured individuals, who are often powerless when forced to go up against large corporations with a vast team of defense attorneys. Personal injury lawyers assist the injured in achieving justice and compensation. Without personal injury attorneys, injured people would be left without a mouthpiece and would have to advocate alone in their battle against the negligent individuals and companies responsible for their injuries. Given the important function of lawyers in our society, it seems fitting to have a day celebrating their accomplishments.
