What is CAALA
The Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles was founded in 1949 and was originally known as an informal group, the Lawyers Roundtable. Most were trial lawyers that pioneered many of the practice areas that are most common today amongst plaintiffs attorneys. By 1952, the original group had more than doubled in size and became an official association to defend clients against unsafe medicine, business practices, and products as well. The group of more than 3,000 attorneys today established their current name in 1994.

Nutris and CAALA
Nutris has been a long-time partner of CAALA. Our commitment to providing outstanding service through advocacy for plaintiffs during defense medical exams has made Nutris an important partner of the CAALA community. During the onset of the COVID pandemic in 2020, Nutris was so committed to furthering the mission of the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles, we became a partner in the “Friends of CAALA” program. Our goal was to support this important organization during a time when normal fundraising wasn’t an option.
