Two Virginia lawyers – Anthony P. Giorno of Roanoke and Terrence L. Graves of Richmond – have been inducted as Fellows of the American College of Trial Lawyers.
The college was founded in 1950 and is an invitation-only professional association of trial lawyers experienced in the trial of cases and dedicated to maintaining and improving standards of trial practice, the administration of justice and the ethics of the profession.
Fellowship is extended to experienced trial lawyers 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 15 years of 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 or province.
