About the WPTLA…

The purpose for which the WPTLA and its western Pennsylvania predecessors were organized was to promote, improve and advance the common interest of all members in the causes of trial advocacy, trial by jury and in encouraging fellowship and understanding between the members of the bar and the members of the judiciary.
WPTLA strives to be a voice for injured victims and to uphold and defend their rights under the American legal system, including trial by jury.
The objective of the association is to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States and of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, to advance the cause of trial advocacy through education, training, and publications, to uphold the dignity of the profession of the law, to encourage fellowship and understanding between the members of the bar and the members of the judiciary, and to improve the adversary system while advancing the cause of trial by jury and the rights of our clients.
