Jay McDonald, an attorney with Daniel Island, South Carolina-based Clawson and Staubes, has been chosen to join the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA).
ABOTA is made up of experienced trial lawyers and judges. The organization bases its philosophies on the Seventh Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and is dedicated to the education of the American people about their right to jury trials.
To be invited to join ABOTA, attorneys are evaluated in the areas of skill, civility, honor, courtesy and integrity.
“I’m honored and humbled to be elected into this organization,” McDonald said. “It is especially humbling, as I have worked hard to foster a positive relationship with opposing counsel, so this is a real honor.”
McDonald has been with Clawson and Staubes for 27 years.
“I’m grateful for the selection and have many to thank, including the folks at ABOTA and Clawson and Staubes," he said. "I’m excited to become a part of this organization, as it will certainly bolster my civil litigation and mediation practice."
To qualify for ABOTA, attorneys are required to have tried a minimum of 20 civil jury trials to verdict.
