What is JUSTICE PAC?
Justice PAC is a bi-partisan political action committee established by The Michigan Association for Justice. Justice PAC is the only PAC in Michigan whose goal is to elect legislators, judges, a governor and other state officials who support the civil justice system.
Justice PAC has been working on behalf of MAJ members for more than two decades. In doing so it has become one of the most effective and respected PACs in Michigan.
Justice PAC works on behalf of you and your clients to ensure that candidates who support the goals of MAJ have the resources and tools to be elected and re-elected. Justice PAC also ensures that candidates know and understand the issues that are of concern to MAJ members and their clients. Join Now!
I already contribute to the candidate(s) of my choice. Why do I need Justice PAC?
Individual contributions to candidates are important, but they cannot compete with the contributions of big business, health care interests, or the insurance industry--all of which have their own PACs.
When we cumulate contributions from members through Justice PAC, we are able to make substantial contributions to strategically targeted races. Legally, Justice PAC is able to make contributions far larger than the legal limit for individual contributions. Justice PAC can therefore have a greater impact on races important to trial lawyers and tort victims than any individual contribution. Join Now!
Where does the money that I contribute go?
Justice PAC supports Michigan legislative, judicial and gubernatorial candidates, both Democratic and Republican. Join Now!
Who decides which candidates receive Justice PAC support?
Contributions to candidates are made on approval of the 15 member JUSTICE PAC Board. Decisions on individual candidates are based on their support of the civil justice system. Criteria include voting records, committee assignments, electability, and candidate interviews. Join Now!
How may I contribute?
Justice PAC utilizes two methods of collection:
a. Charge your contribution to your PERSONAL Visa, Mastercard or American Express account. Billing will occur on a monthly or yearly basis.
b. Request monthly or annual invoicing.
What about corporate contributions?
Justice PAC cannot, by law, accept corporate contributions. Join Now!
What happens when I decide to cancel my contributions?
Your Justice PAC commitment is revocable at will. A call to the MAJ office will terminate your participation. Join Now!
Why join JUSTICE PAC now?
Every year the safety of Michigan families is put in jeopardy as the medical, insurance and business interests of this state unite to try to strip away the protections the civil justice system affords injured people. It is vitally important that every trial attorney in Michigan join this courageous effort to protect the safety and well-being of Michigan’s citizens.
Consider how your clients and their families would be impacted if those that strive to put profit before safety are successful. Consider what would be left of the civil justice system if MAJ & Justice PAC were not there to help defend the vital protections our civil justice system provides.
While many clients will never know how their safety is put at risk each year, it is critically important that the trial lawyers who represent them know what is at stake and do their part to protect and defend the safety of their clients.
