The October issue of For the Defense just arrived in our office and we were delighted to see an article by American Bar Association (ABA) President William T. Robinson III about structured settlements and the American justice system. Based on his speech at the NSSTA Annual Convention last May, Mr. Robinson states the case for structured settlements clearly and convincingly:
“I have believed for many years that the structured settlement is an important tool of negotiation. Actually, I would go further and suggest that trying to resolve a case involving injuries of any seriousness almost requires a structured settlement. I wouldn’t go so far as to call it malpractice not to include a structured settlement, but it certainly would not be effective negotiating.”

For those who may not be familiar, For the Defense is a publication of The Defense Research Institute (DRI). DRI’s highly regarded executive director John Kouris formerly taught at NSSTA’s CSSC program.
Special thanks to John Kouris, For the Defense editor Jay Ludlam and DRI President Matthew Cairns, an attorney with Gallagher, Callahan & Gartrell, for their interest in structured settlements.
