Minnesota Lawyer Interviews New Minnesota Association for Justice President Charles Slane

chuck slane bio picMinnesota Lawyer recently profiled TSR Injury Law Partner Charles Slane, who was elected president of the Minnesota Association for Justice (MNAJ) in August. We are so proud of Chuck for this tremendous accomplishment.

In the interview, Slane discusses the MNAJ, what he enjoys about representing injury victims, how he got into the legal profession, misconceptions people have about being an attorney, and more.

Slane said the MNAJ has done a lot for him and that is why he has pursued leadership roles within the association. The association lobbies to the state Legislature for laws that treat consumers fairly.

In the article, Slane talks about why he went to law school. How he did a lot of reading about the civil rights movement, and how it inspired him to help others. He enjoys how every case provides an opportunity to learn something new.

One of the common misconceptions people have about being an injury lawyer is that it is a glamorous job. However, Slane says it involves a lot of late nights reviewing evidence.

TSR Partner Charles D. Slane Elected Partner of the Minnesota Association for Justice

In the MNAJ’s announcement, TSR cofounder Steve Terry explained what makes Chuck a great lawyer, describing Chuck’s ability to listen and understand his clients.

“The only way that a lawyer can do a good job of representing a client in the courtroom is to listen to the client and understand what they have gone through. It is that experience that allows the story to be properly told, and that is what Chuck Slane is all about,” Steve Terry said.

The power of “storytelling to transform” is going to be the theme of Slane’s term as president. Members of the MNAJ and their clients are looking forward to Mr. Slane’s leadership as the association continues to evolve.

Mr. Slane is becoming president of the MNAJ after the COVID-19 pandemic transformed the practice of law.

“The global pandemic has transformed every aspect of our lives,” Slane said. “But there is one thing the pandemic did not change: the need for ordinary citizens harmed through the wrongful acts of others to assert their legal rights.”

Congratulations Chuck!
