The Million Dollar Advocates Forum is recognized as the most prestigious group of trial lawyers in the United States. Membership is limited to attorneys who have won million and multi-million dollar verdicts, awards, and settlements. The organization was founded in 1993 and there are approximately 3000 members located throughout the country. Less than 1% of U.S. lawyers are members.
Forum membership acknowledges excellence in advocacy, and provides members with a national network of experienced colleagues for professional referral and information exchange in major cases. Members must have acted as principal counsel in at least one case in which their client has received a verdict, award or settlement in the amount of one million dollars or more.
The organization was founded in 1993 and its membership is limited to a small percentage of trial lawyers across the country. The practice areas of the members include personal injury, products liability, malpractice, construction, environmental, employment, insurance, business and other types of litigation.
The purpose of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum is to certify the accomplishments of trial lawyers who have achieved large awards so that they may benefit from that recognition, and so that colleagues and clients will be aware of such accomplishments.
