The American College of Trial Lawyers, composed of preeminent trial lawyers in the U.S. and Canada, inducted Brooks Pierce partner Robert J. King III as a Fellow at its 62nd annual meeting in New York City on October 21. The induction occurred in the Grand Ballroom of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.
For over twenty years, King has devoted his practice to a mixture of litigation and environmental law. He has extensive trial experience in the State and Federal Courts, as well as in multiple arbitrations. His cases have ranged from breach of contract to wrongful death to toxic tort. He also regularly appears in State and Federal appellate courts.
The American College of Trial Lawyers is an invitation-only, honorary association comprised of litigators who have proven themselves in actual trial practice. Its members include all the present members of the supreme courts of the United States and Canada. The College looks for lawyers who are considered by other lawyers and judges to be the best in their states or provinces.
The College is dedicated to furthering the administration of justice and improving the ethics and standards of the trial profession. The College’s Fellowship represents all branches of trial practice, enabling the organization to speak with a balanced voice on important issues affecting the legal profession and the administration of justice.
