Lambert J. Hassinger, Jr. (Joe) invited to become Fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America.

The Litigation Counsel of America (LCA) is an invitation-only trial lawyer honorary society.   Membership is limited to 3,500 Fellows, representing less than one-half of one percent of American lawyers.  The composition of the LCA is aggressively diverse, with recognition of excellence among American litigation and trial counsel across all segments of the Bar.  The purpose of the LCA is to recognize deserving, experienced, and highly qualified lawyers, to provide an outlet for scholarly authorship of legal articles on trial and litigation practice, to provide additional sources for professional development, to promote superior advocacy and ethical standards in the practice of law, to assist in community involvement by its membership, and to advance a superior judiciary, by taking relevant positions on issues or legislation affecting judicial compensation and/or benefits, as well as those affecting the American litigation processes.

Fellows are selected and invited into Fellowship after being evaluated on effectiveness and accomplishments in litigation and trial work, along with ethical reputation. The LCA’s selection process is a combination of Fellow input, internal research nominations by Fellows, attorney opinions, evaluation of client selection of counsel, limited input from active and retired judges, and review of acknowledgement and recognition by other peer reviewing sources and associations.   In using this approach, the LCA has developed its membership with a breadth of experience in litigation that makes its Fellows one of the most well-rounded practice groups among any legal professional society and provides recognition and opportunities to those deserving the designation “Fellow, Litigation Counsel of America.”

GJTBS Director Joe Hassinger is privileged to now be a member of such a prestigious society.
