Shrager & Sachs is pleased to announce that Managing Partner
Rob Sachs has been elected to the Board of Directors of The Lawyers’ Club
of Philadelphia. A prestigious honor that highlights Attorney Sachs’
positive reputation throughout the local and legal communities, selection
to the Lawyers’ Club Board of Directors is a distinction reserved
for respected attorneys who are committed to furthering the organization’s
mission of promoting camaraderie among members of the bench and the bar
in the Philadelphia area. Mr. Sachs will serve a three year term on the
Board of Directors.
Started in 1892, The Lawyers’ Club of Philadelphia is a professional
legal organization that has been steadfast in its efforts to create good
fellowship between lawyers and members of the legal profession in the
Philadelphia region and Judges throughout Philadelphia and the state of
Pennsylvania, including Judges in the Supreme, Federal, Superior, Commonwealth,
and Appeals Courts.
By fostering positive relationships, the Club’s leadership and Board
of Directors play a vital role in ensuring judicial fairness, impartiality,
and civility – pillars of the judicial system that benefit Pennsylvania
residents who find themselves facing a wide range of legal proceedings.
Too often, politics and differing interests in and outside of the courtroom
have the ability to taint legal proceedings. This includes relationships
between not only the bench and the bar, but also between plaintiff and
defense lawyers, government counsel, and all other differing interests
who share the same dedication to their profession.
Attorney Sachs’ election to the Board of Directors speaks volumes
about his continued dedication to the art of law, and his more than 30
years spent fighting for victims and families injured by the negligence
of others. Over the years, the respect he’s earned has translated
into a number of important roles for public and legal interest organizations,
- Five years as one of Pennsylvania’s Governors on the Board of American
Association for Justice
- Chair of the AAJ Publications Committee, 2010-2013
- Chairman of the AAJ Nursing Home Litigation Group, 2011-2012
- Board Member of the AAJ Truck Litigation Group, 2009-2012
- Board member of the Pennsylvania Association for Justice, Philadelphia
Trial Lawyers’ Association, Public Justice Foundation, and SeniorLaw Center
Our firm congratulates Rob on his election to the Board and his continued
diligence toward improving the legal system for both plaintiffs and professionals.
