Congratulations to Courtney Sauer Collins for recently being inducted into the American Board of Trial Advocates (“ABOTA”), an invitation-only national association comprised of experienced trial lawyers and judges who are dedicated to the promotion and improvement of the American civil justice system and the preservation of the Seventh Amendment right to civil jury trials for future generations. ABOTA works to foster improvement in the ethical and technical standards of practice in the field of advocacy to ensure that individual litigants may receive more effective representation.
Founded in 1958, ABOTA requires members to have at least five years of active experience as a trial lawyer, have tried at least 10 civil jury trials to conclusion and possess additional litigation experience. The organization consists of more than 7,300 lawyers – equally balanced between plaintiff and defense – and judges spread among 96 chapters in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Members must exhibit the virtues of civility, integrity and professionalism by following the ABOTA Code of Professionalism and Principles of Civility.
