Awards + Recognition

Richard D. Carroll Lands Prestigious CA Trial Attorney of the Year

CKTFM&P Law is thrilled to congratulate Richard D. Carroll on being awarded California Trial Lawyer of the Year.

Annually, the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) presents one California trial lawyer with this incredible honor.

ABOTA was first created in 1958 with the goal of defending and preserving the rights granted to all American citizens by the 7th Amendment to the Constitution (particularly the right to a trial by jury).

This organization remains “invitation only”, and is comprised of the finest lawyers and judges in America. The recipient of this specific award is chosen through the majority vote of the CAL-ABOTA board of directors (originally formed in 1977), which is comprised of officers from each of the eight local chapters.

These officers represent more than 1,500 California ABOTA members. Because this is the highest honor a California Trial Honor can receive, the recipient must meet several criteria and exhibit several distinguishing traits.

He or she must prove excellence in advocacy, have a reputation for civility, ethics, and fair play, and have obtained a distinguished career. The general criteria for selection of California Trial Lawyer of the Year requires that the selected individual also have participated in an outstanding result.

Before being considered, Richard Carroll had to submit a written and oral presentation to the board. Based on his acclaimed career and extensive accomplishments, he was ultimately presented with this incredible, once-in-a-lifetime achievement award.

Congratulations, Richard!
