About Me

These four organizations admit members only after a rigorous check of their background and trial skills, and recommendations by Judges.  Lawyers cannot apply; membership is by invitation only.


Nationwide, the Inner Circle is limited to 100 Trial Lawyers, the International  Academy to 500 world-wide and the American College to 4000.  It is my privilege to be a member of each of these groups, dedicated to professionalism and education.
