The Inner Circle of Advocates has a rich history beginning with its creation in 1972 as an invitation-only group of the plaintiff lawyers. On June 25, 1972, the first meeting of the Inner Circle of Advocates was convened in San Francisco, CA. The eleven (11) trial lawyers that attended that first meeting understood the importance of sharing information and professional techniques while fostering friendships.
Today, the Inner Circle of Advocates has grown to approximately 100 members representing many of the top and most successful personal injury and wrongful death trial lawyers in the United States. In fact, no more than 100 members can belong to the organization at any given time.
The website for the Inner Circle of Advocates maintains its own directory of attorneys. The public can search by state or view a map to find an attorney in their area.
The mission of the non-profit organization is to promote excellence in civil trial practice. The "7" in the logo of the Inner Circle of Advocates symbolizes the seven-figure verdict originally required for membership in the organization. The group only admitted male members until 1990, when Judith Livingston was admitted as the first female member.
Today, to be considered for membership, the attorney is expected to have 50 jury trials and at least three verdicts of one million dollars or at least one verdict in excess of ten million dollars.
