An experienced civil attorney based in New Mexico, Kathleen “Kathy” Love serves as partner with McGinn, Carpenter, Montoya & Love, PA. In conjunction with her work as an attorney, Kathy Love is a member of the American Association for Justice.

The American Association for Justice (AAJ) recently partnered with other like-minded organizations to sponsor a nationwide awareness campaign called, “Friends Don’t Let Friends Drive Distracted.” Along with Students Against Drunk Driving and End Distracted Driving, AAJ invited teenagers across the country to submit videos and memes that highlight the dangers of distracted driving.

The campaign featured several categories for submission. Videos and memes could target the role of friends in preventing distracted driving, the negative social stigmas associated with the practice, the selfish nature of distracted driving, and the role that parents and siblings play. Several celebrities took part in the effort to judge entries and determine which ones were the best. Notable judges included Philadelphia Eagles tight end Brent Celek and ESPN personality Nikky Williams, among others.
