Kate Jaycox Recognized for Service to American Association for Justice

July 23, 2020

Robins Kaplan is pleased to announce that the American Association for Justice has recognized Kate Jaycox with its “Above and Beyond Award” and a Certificate of Recognition in acknowledgement of the exceptional contributions she has made to sustain and strengthen the organization.

A partner in Robins Kaplan’s Mass Tort Group, Jaycox represents individuals and families who have been injured by the pharmaceutical and medical device industry. She is currently litigating and investigating cases involving the anti-nausea drug Zofran, defective hip and knee devices, and the iron-replacement infusion Injectafer. She also represents the State of Illinois pro bono in litigation against the City of Chicago involving reform of the police department.

Founded in 1946, the American Association for Justice (AAJ) promotes justice and fairness for injured persons, safeguards victims' rights—particularly the right to trial by jury—and strengthens the civil justice system through education and disclosure of information critical to public health and safety. The national organization represents a broad-based, international coalition of attorneys, law professors, paralegals, and law students.

A longtime member of AAJ, Jaycox is passionate about AAJ’s mission to promote a fair and effective justice system. She has served on the organization’s board of governors since 2012 and was named chair-elect of the AAJ’s Women Trial Lawyers’ Caucus earlier this month. This is not the first time her efforts have been recognized by AAJ—Jaycox also received the “Above and Beyond” award in 2018, and twice previously received AAJ’s New Lawyer Division Excellence Award.
