They must be sponsored by a member in good standing and receive approval at the local and national level.

In his thirty years of practice, John has been involved in trials involving a wide number of topics including products liability, premises liability, roadway design, invasion of privacy, assault and battery, false arrest, slander, fraud, real estate, and breach of contract.

John A. KaniewskiFor John, obtaining membership in ABOTA has been one of the highlights of his career. "From the day I started as a lawyer, ABOTA has always been a goal. The firm where I began my career had a number of ABOTA members and one of the partners was the national past president. They always encouraged me to gain the trial experience and build the positive reputation needed to also become a member. I feel honored to be part of such an esteemed group of professionals."

The American Board of Trial Advocates 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. First and foremost, ABOTA works to uphold the jury system by educating the American public about the history and value of the right to trial by jury.
