Judicial Hellholes Are a Law Firm Marketing Opportunity for Plaintiff Lawyers


There are six "judicial hellholes," five jurisdictions on the "watch list," and four "dishonorable mentions" in the list of plaintiff-friendly jurisdictions named by the American Tort Reform Foundation (ATRA).

Viewed another way, the jurisdictions are marketing opportunities for plaintiff lawyers battling big corporations. One lawyer called these places "magic jurisdictions."

Conversely, defense lawyers can make it a marketing distinction that they've kept clients out of these jurisdictions. Also, ATRA identifies six corporate-friendly jurisdictions where defense lawyers can thrive.
