On July 25th, Shareholder Mark E. Macias was named to the San Antonio Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates (“ABOTA”). ABOTA is an invitation-only organization whose members must have at least five years of active experience as trial lawyers, have tried at least 10 civil jury trials to conclusion and possess additional litigation experience. Members must also exhibit the virtues of civility, integrity and professionalism by following a Code of Professionalism and Principles of Civility.
ABOTA and its members are dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the civil jury trial right provided by the Seventh Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. ABOTA membership consists of more than 7,600 lawyers—equally balanced between plaintiff and defense—and judges spread among 96 chapters in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
