Washington, DC— Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, attorney Tobi Millrood was sworn in on July 14 as the Parliamentarian of the American Association for Justice (AAJ) at the organization’s annual convention in Montreal. AAJ is the world’s largest trial bar, working to make sure people have a fair chance to receive justice through the legal system when they are injured by the negligence or misconduct of others.
Millrood, a partner at the Philadelphia and Conshohocken, PA firm of Pogust Millrood, specializes in pharmaceutical and medical device litigation. He is a trailblazer in the field, becoming one of the first in the nation to hold a pharmaceutical manufacturer accountable in court for the cancer-causing effects of menopausal hormone therapy drugs. Millrood was Plaintiffs’ Lead Counsel in the In Re Hormone Therapy Litigation in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas, currently serves as Co-Lead Counsel in the Zimmer NexGen Knee Product Liability Litigation and has served in numerous Court-appointed leadership positions in other pharmaceutical and medical device litigations.
“I am honored to serve on AAJ’s leadership team and I look forward to working toward our goal of giving all people a fair chance to receive justice through our legal system,” said Millrood.
Millrood has previously served on AAJ’s Board of Governors and Executive Committee, and continues to serve on the Board of Governors for the Pennsylvania Association for Justice and the Philadelphia Trial Lawyer Association Board of Directors. He is also the recipient of the 2015 AAJ David S. Schrager President’s Award.
“Tobi’s expertise and commitment to the association will be essential as we work to engage our membership and fight for AAJ’s mission in Congress, the courts, and in the arena of public opinion,” said AAJ President Larry Tawwater.
