Abota Certification


Portland Personal Injury Lawyer, Mark J. Leeds, is a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates – more commonly known by its acronym of ABOTA. The general purpose and mission of American Board of Trial Advocates is:

“The general purposes of this Association shall be to foster improvement in the ethical and technical standards of practice in the field of advocacy to the end that individual litigants may receive more effective representation and the general public be benefited by more efficient administration of justice consistent with time-tested and traditional principles of litigation.”

Being accepted and recognized as an ABOTA member is based on civil jury trial experience and on a system where lawyers accumulate points related to this civil jury trial experience.

How does a Lawyer become an ABOTA Member?

Minimum requirements for lawyers applying to be an ABOTA member are that lawyers must be able to list at least twenty civil jury trials to jury verdict, where they were the lead counsel, or a lawyer can also apply for ABOTA membership if he or she has a minimum of ten civil jury trials to jury verdict, where he or she was the lead counsel, as long as enough points have been accumulated during these ten trials – this is possible because more points are awarded for trials that last longer than one and a half weeks.

For more information the ABOTA membership and what it means for a Lawyer to be an active member in the American Board of Trial Advocates, please visit the official ABOTA website.
