Brian Nelson is a member of ABOTA (American Board of Trial Attorneys), an association of Top Tier Trial Attorneys whose mission is the preservation of the civil jury trial. "Justice by the People," is the primary purpose of ABOTA. They seek attorneys who display skill, civility and integrity, and help younger attorneys achieve a higher level of trial advocacy. They educate the public about the vital importance of the Seventh Amendment. Thomas Jefferson was of the opinion that the right to trial by a jury of fellow citizens was a more important safeguard of personal liberty than the right to vote. With a jury, the rights and duties of each of us are decided by our fellow citizens, not by some bureaucrat or governmental functionary. ABOTA agrees with Jefferson and is a leader in the fight to preserve and protect your right to a jury trial. ABOTA is dedicated to “Justice by the People.”
