The American Board of Trial Advocates, known as ABOTA, is an invitation-only national organization of the finest trial lawyers and judges in America, with a current membership of only 120 in Minnesota. ABOTA members represent both plaintiffs and defendants in civil cases. ABOTA was created in 1958 to defend and preserve the right granted to all Americans by the Seventh Amendment to the Constitution, the right to trial by jury. All of the attorneys who belong to ABOTA have earned great distinction in their trial work. ABOTA's Code of Professionalism and Principles of Civility have elevated standards of integrity, honor, ethics, civility and courtesy in the legal profession and have promoted the image of lawyers.
