Howard, a new member as of October 2019, is excited to be part of an organization that is dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the civil jury trial right provided by the Seventh Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. “I am honored to accept my invitation to the American Board of Trial Advocates,” he said. “Our right to trial by jury is one of our most important rights as U.S. citizens, and I’m proud that we have organizations like this one who work to protect that right for everyone.”

The American Board of Trial Advocates was founded in 1958 and is made up of a combination of both plaintiff and defense attorneys. To receive an invitation, potential members must meet specific requirements, including:

  • Have five or more years of active experience as a trial lawyer.
  • Tried ten or more civil jury trials to conclusion.
  • Exhibit civility, integrity and professionalism as set forth in the organization’s codes and principles.

Pope, who currently serves as secretary of the Georgia chapter, agrees that the organization serves an important role in protecting the right to trial by jury. “As a trial lawyer for my entire career, I’m grateful that we have organizations like the American Board of Trial Advocates focused on the civil jury trial right and on programs that educate people about the process.”

Both Howard and Pope will be active in the local Georgia chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates. Local chapter activities include:

  • Juror education and recognition.
