CTLA Mission

Mark Lanier Quote

The Christian Trial Lawyers Association was founded by Mark Lanier with initial meetings in December, 2003. An article in Texas Lawyer in February, 2004, began to draw members and there are now over 700 in 35 states and 2 foreign countries. (Click to read the “Texas Lawyer Article”)

CTLA Members want to exemplify Christ-like character in their homes, offices, courtrooms and communities. They want to advance Christian principles through ethical training to colleagues and in society at large. They want to provide legal relief to those in need. They want to demonstrate professional excellence and wisdom in order to honor Christ.

They are well aware of their own flaws, but they also know something of the power of the Lord in their lives and hope to prove conventional wisdom wrong in its typical view of trial lawyers as greedy, selfish and prideful.
