William Buus recently became a member of the prestigious trial lawyer’s group, the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA). ABOTA is highly respected in the legal community and it is a great honor to become a member. ABOTA is a national association of experienced trial lawyers and judges dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the civil jury trial right provided by the Seventh Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. ABOTA works to uphold the jury system by educating the American public about the history and value of the right to trial by jury. In order to become a member, a lawyer must have conducted and completed a specific number of jury trials. "This is the highest achievement in my legal career so far," William Buus commented. "I'm both honored and humbled to be a member of a group of people who are the best trial lawyers in the nation. My job is to show that I am also a valuable member of the group."
