Theile McVey has been inducted into the prestigious American Board of Trial Advocates!

Established in 1958, The American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), is a national organization comprised of skilled trial lawyers and judges devoted to preserving and promoting the right to civil jury trial as stipulated in the Seventh Amendment of the United States Constitution. The Association seeks attorneys with integrity, skill, and civility who can help younger attorneys to develop a higher level of trial advocacy and to educate the general public about the Seventh Amendment’s significance.

Membership to ABOTA is by invitation only. Once a trial lawyer has been nominated and elected, the individual may become a member if he or she is of honorable reputation, high personal character, and a member of the Bar in the location in which they practice. The applicant must also have tried a minimum of ten civil jury trials serving as lead counsel to a jury verdict or at least a hung jury, and must list these jury trials on his or her application. Theile satisfied all requirements for membership in ABOTA.

The ABOTA induction adds to Theile’s existing list of awards and accolades from various legal bodies and organizations, such as South Carolina Super Lawyer (2013-2018), 2017 Gold Compleat Lawyer from the USC School of Law, and Legal Elite of the Midlands (2011 to 2017).

John Kassel, is also a member of ABOTA. John was selected to be part of the annual ABOTA Masters in Trial Program held at the University of South Carolina School of Law in February 2018.
