CSVL Partner Lee Weatherly was recently voted into The American Board of Trial Advocates organization (ABOTA). ABOTA, founded in 1958, is a national association of experienced trial lawyers and judges. ABOTA and its members are dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the civil jury trial right provided by the Seventh Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. ABOTA membership consists of only 7,600 lawyers—equally balanced between plaintiff and defense—and judges spread among 96 chapters, in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, governed by local chapters throughout the U.S.
ABOTA is an invitation-only organization with stringent membership requirements, ensuring members possess active experience as trial lawyers, exhibit the virtues of civility, integrity and professionalism within their communities and by following a Code of Professionalism and Principles of Civility.
