Patrick M. Shegon and Robert C. Ward, Jr., shareholders of Rushton, Stakely, Johnston and Garrett, P.A., have been elected into the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) and the Alabama Chapter of ABOTA. ABOTA membership is by invitation only and requires extensive experience as lead counsel in civil trials. The organization seeks attorneys who display skill, civility, and integrity and who help younger attorneys achieve a higher level of trial advocacy. There are approximately 7,000 members of ABOTA in the United States, and only 97 Alabama lawyers have met the stringent requirements for admission and have been invited to join the membership of ABOTA. Two of the eleven Alabama lawyers selected this year are Rushton Stakely shareholders. There are nine shareholders of Rushton, Stakely, Johnston & Garrett, P.A. who are now members of ABOTA.
