Officers and Members of the Board

Founded in 1934, The Society of Trial Lawyers is an elite, invitation-only group, which comprises many of the Chicago’s top trial lawyers on both the defense and plaintiffs’ sides. The goals of The Society are to foster and encourage a spirit of loyalty and fraternity among trial lawyers; to maintain the highest ethical standards in the trial of cases; and to promote closer relationships between and among trial lawyers and the judiciary to further their common interests in the jury trial system.
