Jim Hall Invited to Prestigious ABOTA Organization

Kean Miller, LLP, a 165-attorney full-service business law firm in Texas and Louisiana, is pleased to announce that Houston partner James (Jim) Hall has been inducted into the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA).

ABOTA, founded in 1958, is organization of trial lawyers who have proven an undeniable commitment to professionalism, ethical behavior, and civility in jury trials, as guaranteed by the Seventh Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. ABOTA is comprised of more than 7,600 lawyers, equally balanced between plaintiff and defense counsel, in all 50 states and Washington D.C. 

Membership and subsequent election into ABOTA is a singular honor, as it must be through invitation only, coupled with a substantial and thorough research process occurring for each potential nominee. All invitees must prove that they have tried, as lead counsel, a minimum of 10 civil jury trials to verdict or hung jury. 

“Our right as American citizens to a trial by jury is one of the most important constructs of this country,” states Linda Clark, Managing Partner of Kean Miller. “As lawyers, we all take an oath to uphold the Constitution and pledge ourselves to the dutiful legal representation afforded in this country to its citizens and interests. Jim’s unwavering commitment to, and respect of, jurisprudence and the practice of law has been clearly and emphatically recognized through this invitation to join ABOTA. We are so proud of Jim.”

Jim joins fellow Kean Miller lawyers, Linda Broocks (Houston) and Trey McCowan (Baton Rouge) into membership with the American Board of Trial Advocates.
