Waylon Thompson and Lauren Dodge Waylon Quote with logo EAGLE 650 Header

“Many years ago, when I first joined the Florida Justice Association, I traveled to Tallahassee to see what the organization was all about. I quickly realized that neither right nor wrong decided what legislation got passed; instead, it was which organization wielded the most power and influence.

I also learned that the FJA was the only organization in the State of Florida whose sole purpose was to ensure every citizen has a right to trial by jury. Watching the small number of FJA lobbyists do battle and win against a hoard of lobbyists from the insurance industry inspired me as a young lawyer to get in the fight. The example of commitment, dedication, and hard work of every member of the FJA inspired me to preserve the right of every citizen to have their day in court. Over the years, I have given my time and resources to both preserve the mission of the FJA, and to motivate the younger generation of lawyers to join the fight, because I am EAGLE.”

“I have fond memories of attending FJA conferences with my dad, Waylon Thompson, almost every summer growing up. I longed for the day when I, too, could be a part of the legal profession and be a part of the FJA. Working at his law firm one summer, I met one of his former clients who was a young child that was burned badly in a fire. It was inspiring to see the help he provided to that young girl and her family, and it fueled my desire to become an attorney and to help injured people.

Now, I am practicing law with his firm and am a member of the FJA myself, and it is such an honor to get to be a part of this wonderful organization and witness the many ways that the FJA has made a tremendous impact on the civil justice system. We see firsthand how the legislature impacts the rights of our clients, and recognize how important it is to fight for our client’s rights. I am EAGLE because I want to be a part of the fight!”
