Kreindler is proud to announce that James Kreindler and Steven Pounian have been named Trial Lawyers of the Year by the Trial Lawyers for Public Justice (TLPJ).

Trial Lawyers for Public Justice marshals the skills and resources of over 3,000 of the nation’s top lawyers to fight for justice through precedent-setting and socially significant litigation.
Public Justice named Jim and Steve Trial Lawyers of the Year for their work in the Lockerbie, Scotland - Pan Am 103 Litigation. After a three month trial, they were able to prove that Pan Am acted with wilful misconduct in allowing a bomb to be placed on Flight 103 and obtained a recovery of over $500 million dollars from the airline. The Kreindler attorneys were then able to bring Libya to justice, forcing the nation to pay $10 million to each family, for a total of $2.7 billion. The litigation spanned twenty years and was originally lead by Lee S. Kreindler.
