Robins Kaplan LLP is pleased to announce that partner Liz Fors has been named a 2023 Member of the Year by the Minnesota Association for Justice (MAJ). She is recognized for her commitment to advancing MAJ’s mission while exemplifying legal excellence, professionalism, and ethics.

Fors is a longtime member of MAJ and has served on its Board of Governors since 2017, as well as its Legislative Committee since 2021. As co-chair of the Legislative Committee, she played a crucial role in helping to get the Minnesota Survivorship Bill passed during the 2023 legislative session.

The verdict was listed among the Top 100 Verdicts of 2017 by The National Law Journal. In May 2023, Fors received a $2.5 million jury verdict in a wrongful death lawsuit against Sanford Health in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
