We are proud to announce that our Partner Christopher J. Donadio has been named as the President of the New York City Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA).
The American Board of Trial Advocates is a national organization that was founded in 1957 with the goal of protecting citizens’ access to the courts. In addition, the organization focuses on teaching civics and constitutional history to educators, students and journalists. It is an organization that is comprised of both plaintiff and defendant trial attorneys. Membership into American Board of Trial Advocates is limited to those attorneys who have tried a minimum of ten trials to verdict.
The New York City Chapter of ABOTA was formed when Robert Conason, a renowned plaintiff’s trial attorney (and former Managing Partner of Gair, Gair, Conason, Rubinowitz, Bloom, Hershenhorn, Steigman & Mackauf), and Harold Schwab, a preeminent defense trial attorney, brought together the top plaintiff’s attorneys and top defense attorneys to establish the New York City Chapter.
As President of the New York City Chapter of ABOTA, Mr. Donadio intends to continue the storied history of ABOTA by recruiting the next generation of trial attorneys into the organization. In addition, Mr. Donadio hopes to create an ABOTA CLE program that will allow attorneys to obtain their CLE credits while learning from ABOTA members.
