Since 1957, ABOTA has been committed to preserving citizens’ right to a jury trial. Through professional education, as well as public awareness, ABOTA promotes the highest ethical and technical standards of practice. Membership in ABOTA is restricted to top-tier trial lawyers who demonstrate the very highest levels of integrity and skill. To even be considered for membership, attorneys must have completed a minimum of ten civil jury trials to verdict as lead counsel, and be approved by votes of both the local and national boards.

ABOTA is a national association of experienced and elite trial lawyers and judges committed to the preservation and promotion of the civil jury trial right provided by the Seventh Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The organization educates the general public about the value of right to trial by jury and elevates the standards of integrity, honor and courtesy in the legal profession. ABOTA cultivates a spirit of loyalty, fellowship, and professionalism among members and enables trial lawyers as a group to have an active association in the community.

Members of ABOTA are evaluated based on a number of factors, including personal character and honorable reputation. Members represent both plaintiff and defendants in civil cases. Trial attorneys selected display skill, civility and integrity, a willingness to help younger attorneys achieve a higher level of trial advocacy, and a commitment to educate the public about the vital importance of the Seventh Amendment.

“Becoming a member of ABOTA is an incredible honor,” said John Klinedinst, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Klinedinst PC. “Greg has earned this honor through his extensive trial experience and rock solid integrity. He represents the highest ideals of what being a trial lawyer is all about, and we congratulate him on this incredible recognition.”
