George Kachulis Inducted into American College of Trial Lawyers
Dickie McCamey’s George P. Kachulis has become a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in North America.
The induction ceremony at which Mr. Kachulis became a Fellow took place online before an audience of 670 Fellows during the recent Induction Ceremony at the 2020 Annual Meeting and 70th Anniversary Celebration of the College.
“Election to the American College is an inestimable honor. When one considers the past and current Fellows, the criteria and selection process, it is truly a highlight of my professional career,” said Mr. Kachulis.
Founded in 1950, the College is composed of the best of the trial bar from the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. Fellowship in the College is extended by invitation only and only after careful investigation to those experienced trial lawyers of diverse backgrounds who have mastered the art of advocacy and whose professional careers have been marked by the highest standards of ethical conduct, professionalism, civility, and collegiality. Lawyers must have a minimum of fifteen years trial experience before they can be considered for Fellowship.
Membership in the College cannot exceed one percent of the total lawyer population of any state or province. There are currently approximately 5,800 members in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico, including active Fellows, Emeritus Fellows, Judicial Fellows (those who ascended to the bench after their induction), and Honorary Fellows. The College maintains and seeks to improve the standards of trial practice, professionalism, ethics, and the administration of justice through education and public statements on independence of the judiciary, trial by jury, respect for the rule of law, access to justice, and fair and just representation of all parties to legal proceedings. The College is thus able to speak with a balanced voice on important issues affecting the legal profession and the administration of justice.
Mr. Kachulis is a partner at Dickie McCamey and serves on the firm’s Executive Committee. He has extensive civil litigation and trial experience in many areas, including professional malpractice (medical, chiropractic and podiatric), product liability, motor vehicle/transportation negligence cases, construction law, and commercial law.
The newly inducted Fellow is an alumnus of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law.
