Melick & Porter is proud to announce that Bill Keville was recently admitted to the American Board of Trial Advocates. ABOTA is a prestigious, invitation-only National organization of accomplished trial attorneys. Its membership includes more than 7,600 lawyers — equally balanced between plaintiff and defense — and judges from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The organization is dedicated to preserving the right to a civil jury trial, and to educate trial attorneys while promoting civility, integrity and diversity. ABOTA helps younger attorneys achieve a higher level of trial advocacy through programs such as its National Civil Trial Advocacy Boot Camp in partnership with the National Bar Association. Bill has tried hundreds of cases during his thirty-one years with Melick & Porter, and we are pleased to see him recognized for his many accomplishments as a trial attorney.
