CVMM congratulates Michael D. Barrett on his election to the American Board of Trial Advocates. Membership is by invitation only. Any trial lawyer who is of high personal character and honorable reputation, and who is a member of the Bar of the State, province, district, territory or country in which he or she practices, and who has at least 10 civil jury trials to jury verdict is eligible to be invited. Mike has had more than 40 jury trials go to verdict. Judges, legislators, and community leaders believe that ABOTA encompasses what is “best” in the legal profession, and as we continue to strive to educate students and their parents, educators, judges, lawyers, and all civic leaders with respect to the principles of civility, professionalism, and the precious right to trial by jury.
